Welcome to the libguide for your Hamlet Playbill Project!
Use the home page to find databases and other websites to help you find images to use throughout your playbill. Resources for citing images may be found on the left, art databases in the center, and art museum collections on the right.
Most databases provide a citation for images or articles. However, if you get an image off the web, you'll want to cite it using the Chicago citation style since you are using the image in a Humanities class. You must cite the original location for the photo; never cite Google! Here are some examples:
Last, First M. Photograph Title. Month Date, Year Created. Collection, Museum/Institution, Location. Accessed Month Date, Year. URL.
Cartier-Bresson, Henri. Juvisy, France. 1938. Museum of Modern Art, New York City. www.moma.org.
Caravaggio, The Denial of Saint Peter. Early 15th century. Oil on canvas, 94 x 125.4 cm. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. From: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, http://www.metmuseum.org (accessed September 29, 2009).

You can use any of our databases from off campus if you have the correct user name and password for access. We cannot post these publicly, so they reside on a Google Doc page that requires your JBS email login for access.
