Access hard-to-find raw scientific data with SpringerImages

SpringerImages is a growing collection of scientific images that spans the scientific, technical and medical fields. Specific topics include chemistry, materials science, physics, and more. This continually updated collection – currently over 1.5 million images – gathers photos, graphs, histograms, figures, and tables, and is available 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 and related images from other articles. Users can create personalized image “sets,” and can easily export images for use in their own presentations or lectures.

Anyone can create an account and search the free and Open Access images indexed by SpringerImages. If you have any questions, please contact Jaime Scibelli at 3-5778.
