Harvard University - Biomedical Image Library (BIL) Visual Database uri icon


  • 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.
