LOOK GOOD: your bibliography - an important detail

Show your audience you care about the quality of the information you used and present it in the required scholarly format.

Appropriate images used ( Assessment criteria)


A Yanos is a large communal house where up to 400 Yanomami live. The central area is used for activities such as rituals, feasts and games.

Select images which add information or support your text. 

1. Give the image a meaningful label or description.
2. Include the image's full bibliographical details on your bibliography. Images are an important source of information and correctly acknowledging their author shows the reader that you have considered the value of the source.  


USE the College's Online Reference Generator to correctly reference IMAGES. 

The above image would appear on your Bibliography as,

P3.3 applies graphics as a communication tool

Limit your google image search, for example, limit to black and white line drawings.

Check out Russell Stannard's videos which show you "how to narrow down your Google image searches to help you find the picture you need more easily, helping you better understand one of this essential online tool. You can learn to filter searches by image format, size, colour, its usage rights, and even how recently it was uploaded to the web".

Similarly, you can limit your search in databases Science Reference Centre and Australian and New Zealand Reference Centre ( on your Portal page, Senior Library tab)

Search outside "the google" box

Try your keywords in resources on your Portal page, Senior Library tab:

1. Britannic School HIGH ed. or World Book Encyclopedia  ( great for product history / background)

1. Science Reference Centre

2. Australian and New Zealand Reference Centre

Or try, Google Scholar

Google - Smart!

Use authoritative sources, LIMIT your keyword search by EDU or GOV
