How do I credit FCIT in printed projects?

If you are just using a few clipart items for decoration putting "Clipart courtesy FCIT" in small print is sufficient. If you have more room please include the URL "" so that others can find the site. If you are including clipart as part of the content of a report, you should cite the illustration as you would do for any other source. Your teacher may specify a particular format for citing web sources. We have tried to make it easy for you by including information about the original source where one exists. In general you should include the original source, title of the item, when you downloaded it, and the URL where you found it. Here’s an example:
