New tutorial for searching images on the Internet

"Internet for Image Searching" is a new, free online tutorial to help staff
and students in universities and colleges to find digital images for their
learning and teaching:

The emphasis of the tutorial is on finding copyright cleared images which
are available free; facilitating quick, hassle-free access to a vast range
of online photographs and other visual resources.

This tutorial has been created by TASI - the JISC Advisory Service for
digital media, and Intute as part of the Virtual Training Suite, with
funding from the Higher Education Academy/JISC Collaboration Initiative.

An image resource that may be particularly useful for engineers is the "CAL visual for construction image database", created by Loughborough University

Also available for Bioscientists is the "Centre for bioscience image bank"

For medical images, you could use "Anatomy TV" "Images MD" or the "Welcome Library"

The tutorial will introduce you to many other image sites.

You may also find the TASI pages on "Finding Scientific Images" useful
