Historical Reminiscents EP 23: Pretty Images With No Strings Attached

Photographs and envelopes on a table. Right side reads "Episode 23: Pretty Images With No Strings Attached"

Images have the power to act as click-bait – photographs can illustrate blog posts, make your professional website more attractive, and help illuminate a historical topic.  In this episode I discuss using creative commons and public domain images as part of your online presence.  I breakdown the types of image licenses and mention some of my favourite places for finding photographs.

I would love to hear about where folks find public domain and creative commons images, leave a comment or send me a message on Twitter.

Creative Commons Summary
Europeana Collections
The Met open access policy
Library and Archives Canada on Flickr 
SFU Library guide to finding and using online images

  1. Great info for anyone using photos on their sites and social media! I often go to pexels.com or pixabay.com for my photos. Both are Creative Commons licensing.
