How to cite images

Visual sources can be difficult to cite, so be sure to 1) include as much information as you can, 2) format the elements consistently, and 3) adapt the general formats as described in published citation style guides as needed. If you have questions, please contact me.

Citing images from an image database (ARTstor, CAMIO), should include most, if not all, of this information (or as much of it as can be easily determined from the source).

  • creator's name
  • title of the image as given in the database
  • date of creation
  • name and location of the institution that houses the image (if any)
  • dimensions (if known)
  • material or format (painting, sculpture, photograph, etc.)
  • database name and URL
  • date accessed the database
