Populate Blackboard courses with a variety of Licensed Library Databases.

SMART Imagebase Scientific and Medical Art

GRCC users are free to use SMART Imagebase images for as long as GRCC subscribes to the SMART Imagebase. College students and educators may use the SMART Imagebase content for educational, non-commercial purposes such as research, classroom assignments, test preparation, lectures, web-based courseware, lesson plans, and testing. Users may download images for educational, non-commercial use in lectures, presentations, slide shows, web sites and more.

Unlike other library resources, SMART Imagebase is for downloading images, not linking to them. If  animations are not immediately viewable on the SMART Imagebase screen, you must download the image to view it.SMART image downloading

  1. Identify the image you wish to download.
  2. Click "Download" at the lower right side of the image preview.
  3. Select an image type and click "Download."  Some, not all, images are provided in multiple formats.  Select the format that works best for you. Most downloaded images can be edited (cropped, draw, animated, etc.) with standard image software.
