Scientific Images Database @ Your Library

The Charger Bulletin

The library has free access through the end of October to the SpringerImages database, which contains more than 1.5 million photos, graphs, histograms and tables.   SpringerImages spans science, technology and medicine in 18 subject collections, and is based on trusted sources such as SpringerLink and imagesMD.  Please go to from within the campus network, or to the “Trials” section at the top of the library web site Database list, to use this exciting resource.

Scientific research has become progressively more focused on raw data and visual forms of learning and communication. The visuals in this database come in many different forms, ranging from charts and graphs to high-quality photos.  These images are always up-to-date, as images are loaded as they are published.  The database provides captions and extracts from the source, plus the ability to link to the full text of the source.  It offers creation of image sets and a one-click export to PowerPoint or PDF.
