I often tell students in my classes about this useful tool for finding images and other resources to use in projects. Basically, this is a good way to search for content and be relatively sure that it is free of copyright restrictions, and therefore safe to use. The search tool is available at http://search.creativecommons.org/. It allows you to search via popular sites and engines such as Google, Fickr, etc., while extending the capabilities of those sites to filter for the Creative Commons license.
