9 Alternatives to Google Image Search - PDF Handout

Google Images is the default search tool for many students when they need an image for a project. But Google Image search does have some problems associated with its use in classrooms. Google's image search engine does include some filters for safe searching of images, but it doesn't catch everything. Furthermore, Google Image search doesn't always do great job of returning the results that students actually need.

I made the following chart to give students some options besides Google Images for finding images that are either in the Public Domain or are labeled with a Creative Commons license. The chart is embedded below as a PDF. You can also get a Google Docs copy here.
