Library Image Database (LTU)

Connect to: Library Image Database (LTU)

In 1994 La Trobe University Library (Melbourne, AUSTRALIA) successfully gained funding to develop an image database to improve access to course material in Health Sciences (digital copies of visual resources; xrays, slides, diagrams etc.) from all campus libraries. The project was funded from the DEET National Priority (Reserve) Fund. This has enabled the library to begin the development of a multimedia database to support the University teaching and research programmes. The Image Database provides access from all campuses (Albury/Wodonga,Bendigo, Bundoora and Carlton) to a common database of visual teaching and learning resources (digital images of slides, photographs etc.) Using suitably equipped workstations on campus networks it is possible to search the database and browse the images, display them for research and study, and to down load them for incorporation into course or assignment presentations.
