Springer launches SpringerImages

July 08, 2009

Springer Science+Business Media has launched SpringerImages (www.SpringerImages.com), a growing collection that now includes over 1.5 million scientific images, tables, charts and graphs, spanning all scientific subject areas. The new database will be officially launched at this week's American Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago. SpringerImages includes the high-quality image collection from Images.MD, as well as images from Springer journals and books, including Open Access content. The database contains photos, graphs, histograms, tables and figures, and is available by subscription to libraries and research institutions.

SpringerImages allows users to search fast, broadly and accurately through captions and keywords (both author-provided and user-generated). A feature unique to SpringerImages, users can also search the sentences from the full text which refer to the image. The platform provides bibliographic information for the sources, as well as one-click access to the full text, allowing users to delve deeper into the context of the image and research surrounding it.

Images obtained from SpringerImages can be used for almost all non-commercial purposes, including integration into presentations and PDF documents. The platform enables the user to store image sets and saved searches. Image sets can be exported to PDF or PowerPoint (including their bibliographic data) with one click. Copyright and license information for images for commercial use is also available.

"SpringerImages helps connect users with content which is essentially invisible in STM platforms today: the data inside an article," said Olaf Ernst, President of eProduct Management at Springer. "SpringerImages provides a unique value by providing students, researchers, professors and librarians with a single comprehensive resource for scientific images. In the future, we plan to partner with additional sources to expand the image collection."
