We are pleased to announce a name change: The Cell: An Image Library-CCDB is now the Cell Image Library. This reflects the full integration of the original The Cell: An Image Library with the Cell Centered Database into what is now truly one resource. We are still at http://www.cellimagelibrary.org.
The Cell Image Library is now on Instagram. Check us out on Instagram at cell_image_library.
In an effort to make the images in the Cell Image Library even more accessible we have developed the Cell Library mobile app for iPhone and iPad. Just visit the App Store and search for “Cell Library.”
Don’t forget, if you are applying for a grant soon and need a Data Management Plan (DMP) be sure to contact us before submitting your grant application so we can help with your cellular images’ DMP.
The Cell Image Library (http://www.cellimagelibrary.org) is a freely accessible, easy-to-search, public repository of reviewed and annotated images, videos, and animations of cells. Portions of the Cell Image Library were developed by ASCB under a Grand Opportunities grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences and are now managed by the National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research under a perpetual license from ASCB.
