This tutorial has been created by TASI – the JISC Advisory Service for digital media and the Virtual Training Suite, with funding from the Higher Education Academy/JISC Collaboration Initiative.

The emphasis of the tutorial is on finding copyright cleared images which are available free; facilitating quick, hassle-free access to a vast range of online photographs and other visual resources.

Mindful of the minefield that is copyright law, Sharon Waller from the Higher Education Academy commented on the new tutorial saying:

“This tutorial is an excellent resource for anyone needing to know more about where and how to find images online. The fact that it concentrates on copyright cleared images will make it even more valuable for busy learning and teaching professionals, researchers and students alike. It will also serve to inspire confidence in those needing to use images from the web in their work.”

Professor Sol Picciotto of the Lancaster Law School provided some early feedback:

“Congratulations on this tutorial. It’s really excellent, very well set out, and the information on copyright is presented clearly and accurately. It really fills a gap, and does so extremely well.”
