Trial of SpringerImages
07/28/09 Portland, OR
The OHSU Library currently has access to a trial of "SpringerImages" http://www.springerimages.com/.
SpringerImages is a growing collection of scientific images that spans the scientific, technical and medical fields, including high-quality clinical images from Images.MD. The continually updated collection – currently over 1.5 million images – gathers photos, graphs, histograms, figures, and tables, and is available to libraries and their patrons via a searchable online database. The SpringerImages interface enables users to search faster, more broadly and more accurately, through captions, keywords, context and more, even jumping from the image to the source article. Users can create personalized image "sets," and can easily export images for use in their own presentations or lectures. Images obtained from SpringerImages can be used for almost all non-commercial purposes, including integration into presentations and PDF documents.
This access to Springer Images will last through the end of December 2009. Questions? Contact Friday Valentine, Cataloging & Metadata Librarian, (503) 494-0883, firstname.lastname@example.org.
