I’m giving a poster presentation about my summer fellowship project. I have some photos and graphs from articles I found in the library and on the web. Do I need copyright permission to use them on my poster?

Is your poster presentation being given in an classroom or academic setting only? See the “Understanding Fair Use” page of this website; you may not need to seek permission for using the visual materials. If you intend to give your poster presentation at an event that is not related to an educational event or location, for example, a business conference, you may need to seek permission. Using a tool like the Image Decision Tool to see if copyright applies, will help you to determine if you need to seek permission.
