More information and links are available below.
Videos can be harder to cite in your work but allow for stories to be told in a different way than reading a text. Library databases often include a "Cite" feature to make it easier; for other videos you find online, do your best!
Also explore news websites, social media posts, YouTube, TedTalks, etc... a simple internet search should help you locate these sources. Some TedTalks are available in OneSearch (main search box on library website).
Don't forget about DVDs! We have a collection at the library should you need it.
Remember to check permissions before you use images in your assignments and outside-of-class work!
It's likely that you'll have to provide a citation or attribution for images and other content found online. The table and links below can help you sort out which to use and how to do it!
