Visual images can be a powerful way to make your point in presentations and research papers. The databases we subscribe to allow use of the images for academic work only - please be aware of copyright and fair use.
For the databases the library provides, this means you may use images in papers and presentations (including posting on KATIE), but may not post the images to a public forum (including freely-available websites or publications).
