Farmington Municipal Schools encourages the use of appropriate image search engines for educational research and are providing this page as a starting point for your image searches. Remember that you need to keep a few things in mind as you search for and use images from the internet.
Make sure you can legally use the image in your work. This may require getting the creator's permission.
Always provide appropriate citations for images you use.
Confirm that the image is correct for your topic. Research the reliability of the source of the image so you are not incorrectly attributing an image to something it's not.
The best method for searching for images is to search for sites dedicated to your topic. Those sites, especially ones of high quality, will contain images that are reliably referenced, researched and appropriate. Dedicated image searches are less reliable and useful than content searches. If you would still like to use some dedicated image search tools we have several listed here and more can be found online.

There are many sources of images avaiable online and some are great starting points for educational research. Please consider using some of these focused image searches.
