Just a reminder that I will be here summer semester.  If you need library instruction for any of your classes, please contact me to schedule a session.

Web Sites of Interest

Public Health Image Library

The goal of the Public Health Image Library (PHIL) is to offer "an organized, universal electronic gateway to the Center for Disease Control's pictures." The site welcomes public health professionals, laboratory scientists, students and the general public to use this material for reference, teaching, presentation,  nd public health messages. On its homepage, visitors can use the PHIL Quick Search to look for photos, illustrations, or videos. The Featured PHIL Collections contains thematic sections that deal with influenza, natural disasters, environmental health, and bioterrorism. Photographers and those working in health care and education will also want to look over the What's New In PHIL area to get the latest detailed information. Finally, visitors can also use the Contact Us area to have specific queries answered. [KMG]


Biodidac is a bank of digital resources for teaching biology, courtesy of the great folks at the University of Ottawa. First-time visitors will note that the materials are contained within three thematic areas, includingHistology and Organismal Biology. Visitors can click on each area to view high quality resolutions of various cells and bodies that can be used to create study guides for public health, medicine, and other related health fields. The What's New? area is a great way to learn about the latest additions to the site. Additionally, an Information section brings together details on the site's focus, various reports, and funding information. Finally, visitors can click on the Images area to learn more about specific images and animations of the fungi, animalia, and the structure of a
mitochondrion. [KMG]

ATCC: The Global Bioresource Center

The American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) is a professional science group based in Manassas, Virginia. Its Learning Center page is a great way for interested parties to learn about upcoming research and scientific projects. The ATCC Newsletters area offer another great place to start and users can peruse two newsletters entitled, "Cell Passages" and "Micro Scoop." The Resources for Cell Biology area allows visitors to explore a range of cell culture guides and online video guides, including assay training films and webinars. The site also includes a link to upcoming events and conferences that will be of interest to those in various life science fields. [KMG]
