Is it OK to include Tanguay images in profiles?

As a secondary source in addition to the Quebec Catholic Parish registries, I'd like to add images from the Tanguay collection to the profiles in my tree that are old enough to have an entry.  Is that OK?  

I read a post somewhere here that they are in the public domain, so if I take a screenshot of the portion of the PDF page in question, and attribute it properly of course, is that due diligence adequate?

ALSO - since I would like to add the proper Tanguay ref  - is there a preferred online Tanguay site that people use, or do they just refer to the Volume and Page number, and assume people will find it on their own.  I've got PDFs on my laptop so don't need to go online to retrieve it.

Just starting out with WikiTree, and want to get my procedures proper from the outset as much as possible (and don't want to cause copyright issues for myself or WikiTree in the future).

Thanks, - Greg

Tanguay is public domain, so that is not a problem.  Use   

http://bibnum2.banq.qc.ca/bna/dicoGenealogie/ Tanguay Vol  pg

 (with the ref tag and brackets added, omitted here so the url shows) as the best way to list it, the url is for the Bibliothèque et Archives Nationales du Québec (BANQ), it is main archives library for the province.  Accessibe to all, and doesn't disappear like the google version of same.
