INFO LIT: The Public Domain

A brief guide to the public domain, copyright, creative licensing, and more (or: how to figure out if you can use that image you found online!)

Citing Your Finds

While it won't technically be copyright infringement if you don't cite something from the public domain, it's always a good idea to let people know where you got something!

Thus, you should still cite public domain things in your papers and where ever else you use it.

Use NoodleTools as you would any other source. =)
