There are a series of databases available through the library and on the free web that will give you access to ads from recent or older advertising campaigns. Tools like Ad*Access & the Advertising Archives can help you find ads by theme or time period. As we discussed in class, it is important to properly cite the use of these ads in your assignment by attributing the ad to the individual database, website or publication through which you found it.
Your go-to source for finding subvertisements or spoof ads is Adbusters, available online or in print at the Scott Library.
As noted on the Adbusters website, Adbusters images can be used for school reports or papers as long as they are cited properly:
"If you are planning to publish (e.g. a thesis) something containing an Adbusters article or image, then yes, please contact us for permission. If you are interested in using parts of the magazine for school art projects (e.g. collage), reports or papers, then please go ahead. You don’t need to ask us (but thanks for the gesture!), just please cite the images."
