BMC Biology Image Library

BioMed Central has just launched an online collection of biological images, film clips and animations.

The Biology Image Library is intended for educational and research purposes, and contains more than 11,000 images covering subjects which include neuroscience, developmental biology, and microbiology.

Although BioMed Central is an open access publisher, the Biology Image Library is only free from within academic institutions which are subscribed. A personal subscription costs $293 a year, and the publishers are offering a free trial which provides access to the whole site for 7 days.
