How to reference images, diagrams and tables

We've been asked a few times lately how to reference images.  If your image, diagram or table is from a journal article or book then you should reference the journal article or book and include the page number.

Our Write and Cite guide for the QM Harvard style of referencing tells us on page 20 how to reference online images, diagrams and tables.  Details should be set out in the following order and with the punctuation as indicated:

Title of image or a description (in italics).
Year.
online image [in square brackets]
Available at: followed by the internet address
Date accessed. [in square brackets]

LRC at night in colour. 2008. [online image] Available at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/queenmargaretuniversitylibrary/3111106804/in/photostream [Accessed December 12 2012].
