How do I reference images?
When you include an image in your work, you need to ensure you give it a figure number (and a brief, descriptive caption, if you wish).
When you refer to the image in your text, you need to include an appropriate in-text citation for the source of the image:
Then put the full reference for the image in your bibliography as normal OR if you are writing a piece of work which requires a Table of Illustrations, then put the image reference in the Table of Illustrations instead. The full reference for the photograph above would be:
Remember, if you haven’t referred to an image anywhere in your writing, then the image should not be included in your final submission.
What is a Table of Illustrations?
A Table of Illustrations is simply a list of all your figures in number order, with their full Harvard reference (you do not put the image itself in a Table of Illustrations).
At NUA a formal Table of Illustrations is usually only needed for your Year 3 Research Report, but it’s good practice to include one for all your work, even if it is just jotted down on the back of a display board or sketchbook.
Here is an example of a Table of Illustrations:
Check with your tutor if you are unsure if a Table of Illustrations is needed.
