July 22, 2016 – The newly renovated ASAS Animal Science Image Gallery was introduced last night during a special preview at the 2016 Joint Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City.
The gallery is now housed at: animalimagegallery.org
The site is designed to provide images, animations, and short videos for classroom and outreach learning. To supplement the visual information, each file has a description and metadata, including the origin and ownership of the image. Downloading any image within the gallery is free for ASAS members and only $5 per image for non-members. Each file in the gallery has had at least two peer reviews to optimize the image and its metadata, and to ensure that the information is sufficient and accurate.
Submitting an image to the gallery is easy! There is no submission fee for ASAS members and only a $25 fee (per image) for non-members.
Dr. Amy Radunz, new Editor-in-Chief of the Animal Science Image Gallery, said the gallery currently includes 600 images. However, the gallery sees 300,000 downloads per year.
