New Version of Medical Illustrations Database Now Available From EBSCO
Nucleus Medical Media, Inc. (www.smartimagebase.com) has launched a new version of Scientific and Medical ART Imagebase (SMART Imagebase), a subscription-based website available from EBSCO Publishing (www.ebscohost.com). In addition to medical illustrations and medical animations, SMART Imagebase also includes illustrated monographs and interactive projects.
SMART Imagebase is used in schools and colleges worldwide and lets users download more than 20,000 images and animations of anatomy, physiology, disease, conditions, surgery, and trauma to use for educational, non-commercial purposes such as classroom projects, web-based course curricula, and professional training.
For the latest version of SMART Imagebase, Nucleus added more than 2,000 new content items, along with additional features to help users find, download, share, and edit content faster than ever. Users will notice a new look to the interface and faster performance from the upgraded resource. Pop-down search menus, larger image previews, and a more user-friendly design along with enhancements designed to improve search and display speed will make the resource even easier to use.
Nucleus has also made "under the hood" upgrades that improve the overall performance over the original version. Additional upgrades include better navigation and search-expanded content categories and tag-based search terms; additional languages, along with a faster search engine, will allow users to access SMART Imagebase content more efficiently.
The new version also includes editing tools so users can edit the image titles and add labels plus social media sharing options. The new image editing tool suite allows those who need to edit and print images quickly the ability to make changes with a few intuitive clicks-an easy alternative to graphics or word processing software. Users may also create collections of content to share with others, comment on content items, and create links to collections, images, and third party content.
