Like all resources, digital images and recordings of music should be used responsibly.  Be sure to try your best in complingy with copyright law, license agreements, and the Terms and Conditions of Use provided by the databases or websites that you acquire the images from, and always cite your images, just as you would any other source. 

Whether you are using them in a paper, Power Point presentation, Prezi, or video, you must provide a citation for your images and music recordings.  

The format of your citation will vary depending on the citation style that you have chosen to use, and information about the context of the image or music. Eloise can help you determine what you need, but a good faith citation effort will get you almost all the way there!

Most citation style manuals will contain information about how to properly cite images and music.  For examples in MLA, Chicago, and APA format, take a look at the following resources:
