Launch of the new Picture Libraries section on the IMI website

Over the last year IMI has been working with both Wellcome Images and the Science Photo Library to bring to IMI members a dedicated section relating to picture libraries.


The section is located in the members’ only area of the web and is a real benefit to those who wish to work with the libraries; there is a dedicated link for both Wellcome Images and the Science Photo Library.


There is a whole wealth of information there, such as sample consent/model release forms, contributor information, wish lists and much more. 

If you’ve ever thought of submitting work to a picture library but never got round to it this resource will guide you through and make it easier, so now’s the time to get involved.
