How to Google Search for Free to Use Material

Just because it’s online does not mean that it is free to reuse.  It may be copyright.  Here’s how to search for material that you can reuse…attributing the source, of course!

  • Using Internet Explorer, go to Google and start your search
  • Once the research results are on the screen, go to the cog icon, drop down the arrow beside it and choose Advanced Search

  • At the advanced search screen, scroll down to Usage Rights, drop down the arrow beside the box and choose Free to Use or Share.
