Legal and Ethical use

Next week our team will be contributing to the poster display in Firth Hall. When making our poster, we had to consider certain issues regarding legal use of images and other intellectual property. Specifically, we had to make sure that the material was usable under copyright. To do this, we only used images from certain sources, such as Flickr and Wiki Commons, which show whether images are available under Creative Commons licenses (as detailed in Sheila Webber's blog post). In the end, we elected to use the image below; its about the seven wonders of the ancient world. We got it via the public domain of Wikipedia.

From Wikipedia public domain

We also had to make sure to attribute other intellectual material, such as the text descriptions of SCONUL 7 Pillars.
