TIPS for Image Searching:

  • You are looking for images to accompany what you are saying
  • You are not looking for decorations to make your slides look pretty
  • You don’t want cartoons, drawings, doodles, or images from movies (these are other people’s interpretations of your event – no modern stuff, please)
  • You want primary sources (real-life objects from the time and place)
  • The website you search must be reliable (images must be described and dated – they should not just be floating there with no context for them – that would be an unreliable source)
  • Sometimes you cannot find an image that is a direct reference to what you are saying – here is where you have to be clever and creative in your searching*
  • Don’t overuse certain objects: busts and coins
  • Cite the website where the image originally came from, not the Google search you did

For my Tiberius PPT when I was looking for images for my infrastructure slide this is the process I went through:

  • *Knowing that Tiberius didn’t build a lot but that he did build barracks for Praetorian Guard just outside Rome, I searched Praetorian Guard barracks – no luck.
  • I searched Praetorian Guard and found an object related to the guard

THE REAL LESSON YOU SHOULD LEARN FROM FINDING IMAGES IS HOW TO ASCERTAIN WHETHER AN IMAGE/OBJECT IS RELIABLE OR NOT
