So we’ve talked about the ethical use of images in the library before. You know that you can’t just download an image from the internet and call it your own. So how do you find images that are free to download and use?
There are sites that provide ethically sourced or free images such as Creative Commons and istock but did you know that Google does as well? You must create a filter for it first. Here’s how:
1. Go to www.google.ca (or .com)
2. Click on “Images” tab and search for an image.
3. In “Options” (far right, beside safe search moderate), choose “Advanced Search.”
4. Located towards the bottom of the search fields, select “usage rights”. Choose one of the “free to use” options.
Katsa was born with superhuman strength and wishes she wasn’t. Her mismatched eye colour reveals her special powers to everyone around her which make her feared throughout all the kingdom – a fear her uncle, the King, exploits. Soon Katsa is sent on a mission to a rival kingdom. Will she finally come to terms and accept her Grace or will it be her downfall?

What is it?
Like a book club, interested staff and students meet in the library’s magazine area to discuss the selected title. Since these meetings are always held at lunch, bring your lunch!
When do they take place?
Check out the list of meeting dates here.
The library’s magazine section and the surrounding area. Don’t worry if things look tight. We’re a friendly group and always make room for everyone.
Who can come?
Anyone and everyone! It’s generally a mix of staff and students who have read or are interested in reading the book. Some of our students are regulars.
To discuss the books of course! It’s just as much fun to discuss them as it is reading.
The first book we will be discussing is Amy Chua’s Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother – one of our most popular titles! Hope to see you all there!
Our Bibliophile bloggers have been busy!! Check out their latest here.
