Searching Tips!

If you are looking for a certain graphic, you can try using a search engine to locate the "perfect" graphic.  Another tip- when searching for that "perfect" graphic, don't use the words free clipart or graphics in your search. You will find that thousands of sites come up. Some of these sites contain very inappropriate material. 
Try typing in the topic you are looking for and the words clipart.
For example "rabbit clipart" or "bunny clipart".
