Regarding Copyright:

  When using images in presentations and posters, you must cite the source of image. 

  All images found in Library subscription resources may be used within the Carilion community without asking permission from the copyright holder. 

  However, you must ask the copyright holder (usually the publisher) for permission to use images in posters and papers presented outside of the Carilion community. 

  If you are planning on presenting a poster at a conference, be sure to ask permission to use images at least 3 months in advance of the event.
