    Hi Guys,

    Does anyone know of a source of biological diagrams such as physiological cross sections / diagrams of cells / general kinda thing you would find in a text book?

    The reason I ask is because I am currently making all my notes into electonic format but the problem is with finding decent diagrams. I don't want to scan in pictures from textbooks because they would be against the copyright and I intend to publish everything on the intranet.

    So...a diagram website is what I really want where they don't mind you using them for your own use.

    I doubt I have made much sense!

    Cheers guys,
    Nicky.

    Thanks for that link - looks to be a useful site.

    I have tried googling before and rarely find anything suitable.

    I can generally find diagrams which are quite decent but they are usually copyrighted and say that they cannot be re-published on the internet.

    Thanks for the links tho!

    I'm sure if you quote the source, then it is all right...after all the most they can do is tell you to remove the image...

    That's slightly bad practice. I would just send an email to one of the sites asking if you can borrow their diagrams.
