This older site, which still has useful information, as created by former HSL Education Media Specialist Bob Ladd. It is intended to help faculty, students and others find sources of free or inexpensive digital media content, such as medical images, audio, and video, and discusses issues related to the use and reuse of digital media content.
Note: a few image sources on this guide are linked to licensed versions specifically for Mayo Clinic users and may not be available to others (e.g., ClinicalKey). Some of these licensed resources may be available to UNC users from our library sites (e.g., Up to Date, VisualDx).
This subsection of Flickr is a directory of photos offered by Flickr users under a Creative Commons license. The right sidebar on the page explains the types of licenses and what you should do if you would like to use a photographer's picture.
