How do I cite an image that I want to use in a publication, presentation, or website?
Attribution differs from a full citation. When attributing a work, you will simply give credit to the copyright holder.
- Most U.S. Government images are within the public domain, and can be used without attribution.
- Many works available for sharing will have a Creative Commons license. The Creative Commons link with the image will provide citation details.
