Get the Picture: Finding and Using Images

June 25, 2014 - 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm (already occurred)
Frost Library, Lane Room

Found the perfect image online, but the quality is too poor to use in your paper or presentation? Are images at the heart of your research? This workshop will focus on finding, evaluating, and using high-quality images in a variety of subject areas, including art, historical photography, and popular media. We'll look at Amherst College Digital Collections (ACDC), ARTstor, museum collections, and more obscure media resources, and learn the secrets to better Google Image searching. We'll also discuss how to properly credit images in your papers, presentations, and creative projects.
