The Assignment:

Public Domain, Copyright and other issues...

"Go to the Library and consult a print dictionary for the definitions; cite the specific dictionary [also get an online definition] , ask the reference librarian about the availability of public domain photographs; get a quote from her/him."  

[ presumably a quote about pubic domain photographs in the library ].

 Here are the definitions:

copyright_defined

public domain defined

Here is a quote from a Reference Librarian:

"The Library has no significant collection of public domain photographs.  You will need to look on the web for those.  Also, your assignment does not deal with "royalty free" graphics, which are another important group of usuable images - and you would get these from the web, not the library"
