BIL: Biomedical Image Library
The Biomedical Image Library is a publicly accessible repository and retrieval system for original digital micrographs that have been produced in support of basic biological research. Funded through Harvard's Library Digital Initiative, BIL is a collaboration between the Countway Library of Medicine, the Biomedical Imaging Laboratory at the Harvard School of Public Health, and the Harvard University Library. BIL holds light, fluorescent, and confocal micrographs in a centralized infrastructure to ensure persistent access to its objects. BIL also features a central catalog that allows investigators to search BIL holdings through text-based and controlled-vocabulary queries. Investigators can identify and retrieve material through structured, hierarchic metadata that preserve the scientific context of each image or set of images.

To search or browse the collection, follow one of the links at left.

BIL is currently accepting data from any Harvard researcher. To contribute to BIL, please contact Paul Bain.
