How do you find media to use in presentations, web pages or other potentially public projects that don’t infringe on copyright?  Search for material with a Creative Commons license at

Another tip for cataloguing media is to name it with the following convention:

  • date
  • site
  • author
  • file name
  • EXAMPLE: 151016_flickr_scottl_fenderstrat.jpg

Organizing your media this way makes it easier to cite the work later when you put the presentation or project together.
