NLM’s Open-i searches biomed through images

Open-i is a unique search service from the National Library of Medicine. Open-i indexes images in collections such as PubMed Central and returns them in search. Results can be limited by type of image, specialty, date, and other filters. It also offers two ways to view your results, in a citation list or an image grid.

Open-i also allows you to drag an image from your desktop into the search box, initiating an auto search based on it. Internet Explorer does not support this feature, so Chrome, Firefox, or Safari must be used.

Visit Open-i today to try out this new way to search.
