assignment4.7 Model Assignment : Task 4

Record the sources of computer graphics

What you must do

ParrotRead through the assignment scenario again. As advised in Section 1 of this unit, you should start a reference or sources log just as soon as you begin your project and keep adding to it as you go along. Don’t wait until the end to do it.

You should make a record of where you found every graphic, the date it was collected, and for digital graphics you should also note the file name, type and size.  Use or adapt the blank ‘Sources log’ template. Save it to your sources folder and keep it up-to-date.

Make a record of all the secondary sources you use in your final graphics: whether images scanned from books or magazines, downloaded from the internet, or sourced from other media.

You must also show evidence that you have considered copyright law by finding and noting the copyright information that applies to every graphic. Make a note of it in the log.

This is a good time to check back over the sources that you have already logged to make sure you have all the data you need to evidence.

To get higher grades you must give enough information for other people to be able to find your sources too. It is advisable to test this on your fellow students to make sure that you have.

It is a good idea to clearly identify your primary sourced graphics too in the log – the
images you have taken or scanned yourself
