Harder to Find than Nemo: The Elusive Image Citation Standard
Weinraub, Jennifer Yao
College & Research Libraries, v79 n4 p480-498 May 2018
New image citation standards need to be developed for college and graduate students to meet visual literacy standards. The "MLA Handbook," 8th edition, and "Chicago Manual of Style," 16th edition, do not adequately clarify how to caption, attribute, and cite images. Other image captioning and citing resources are available, but they refer to the "MLA" and "Chicago" manuals. Image captions from scholarly journals vary widely and cannot be used as examples for students to follow. Recommendations are also provided for future editions of the "MLA Handbook" and "Chicago Manual of Style."
