(CNN) -Google is working to fight fake content.

Google announced Monday that it will now highlight information from fact-checkers in image search results.

Users who conduct searches on Google images will now see labels beneath pictures that have been flagged by third-party fact-checking organizations.

It is an expansion of a feature that is already on Google news and Google search.

Google is using a database it helped develop with Microsoft’s Bing and the Duke Reporters’ Lab, a journalism research program at Duke University.

The database, known as claim-review, is also heavily used by fact-checkers who have partnered with Facebook.
