Referencing images in assignments

With a lot of you working on assignments which require images to be included, we’ve had a number of queries on how to reference an image in an assignment.  This isn’t always easy but here are some instructions on how to do this below.  Please get in touch if you are unsure chhslibrary@swansea.ac.uk 

In text:
The reference in text is similar to other materials, you still need to look for an author and a date, although these aren’t always available.  You will also need to give your image a number and a title in text.  For example:

team-photo-use-this-one

Figure 1: Librarians (Human & Health Sciences, Medicine and Science Library Team, n.d.)

In the reference list:
Human & Health Sciences, Medicine and Science Library Team. (n.d). About us. [Photograph]. Retrieved from https://hhmslibraryteam.wordpress.com/about-us/

The above is an example of a photograph reference, if you were citing a different image format you can replace [Photograph] with [Graph], [Digital image], [Demographic map] etc.
