Primary sources

St PaulsThese are original graphics you have made yourself. They could be photos you have taken with a phone or digital camera, slides captured from a digital microscope, and even sketches, drawings, paintings, collages, plans or diagrams you have created with traditional tools, scanned or created digitally from scratch.

Secondary sources

If you decide to use any images or information from secondary sources such as the Internet, CD-ROMs, or scanned books, magazines and newspapers, you must do two things: check for copyright restrictions and name your sources in your sources log as well as next to the work itself whenever possible.


Copyright issues are covered more fully in Section 4. You should read that information now before you do the activities that follow.
