Building Research Confidence in the Humanities: Citing Images in Presentations and Papers

10:00 am – 11:00 am
Zoom, registration required
Richard Graham,
Attendees have the opportunity to learn about finding and citing the images that support their papers and presentations. Citations are more than avoiding plagiarism- they are a trail for others to follow and discover sources for themselves. They also give due credit to the creators of the image or video an author uses to support or sustain their argument. We will introduce a small variety of image databases, touch on fair use and copyright, and learn about the main elements needed in popular citation styles (Chicago, MLA, APA) for these materials. Instruction is online via Zoom.

The UNL Libraries is excited to launch the workshop series “Building Research Confidence in the Humanities.” Covering topics ranging from finding and organizing primary materials, locating and managing scholarly sources, and analyzing resources, to making decisions about presentation and publication, this nine-session series will introduce humanities researchers to a range of tools, resources, and techniques for growing their research practice.

The target audience for this series is graduate students in the humanities who are starting out in advanced research or who want to level up their research skills at any time in their graduate program. Examples, tools, and points of reference will speak to research in the humanities and focus on research at the graduate level and beyond. While we want participants to be aware of this target audience to help set expectations, all UNL students, faculty, and staff are welcome.

Registration is required.
