English 001 A (Worthington): Finding Images

Disintegration/Reintegration (Daraja)

Finding Images Introduction

It is best to plan finding your images and graphics in advance.

Keep in mind that cutting out anything from a magazine, journal, newspaper or book from the Library's collection is vandalism.

You can check out books and magazines and can certainly save what you find on the Web onto a flash disk or cloud storage (or Email to yourself the image as an attachment).

Saving onto a flash disk requires you to use the Student Computer Lab (not the reference computers). The Library has one color copier, located to the left of the New Books display (facing toward the display). The cost for copying in color is 50 cents per page. There are also options to enlarge and reduce copy size. Chabot College currently does NOT have a color printer available.

Places to Find Images Online

In EBSCOhost databases, select the Images link from the top menu bar (under "More").
