Images as Primary Sources

While many research papers rely on books and scholarly articles as sources of information, images and videos can be equally useful. Using images as evidence may seem complicated, but the importance of primary sources makes it worth the effort. Consult the Library of Congress link below for guiding questions to help you analyze images. 

Don't forget that any information source you use, including images, must be cited in your research paper.
