Getting and Posting Images

Manipulating images

Getting permission

  • It is always safer to ask permission to use the images you take from books and websites. For background on copyright see: Ethical and Legal Use of Digital Media (Knowledge Navigation Center)

  • Here's a script for asking a publisher for permission

  • Whom to ask:

    • If the image is from a book, then call, email, or write the publisher. Contact information can be found in International Literary Market Place (New York, R.R. Bowker Co.) Call number Z291.5 .I62, or The Publishers Directory (Detroit, Mich. : Gale Research Co.) Call number Z 475 .B77. Both are near the Information Center on the 2nd floor of the Graduate Library.

    • If the image is from a website, try find contact information of the site's copyright-holder (Often at the bottom of the main page).
