The Division C Image Library will include images of pure
cultures, wet mounts, and stained smears from clinical specimens.
Images of routine organisms are important but the library will also include
images of unusual organisms (or combination of organisms) that may not
be seen frequently. The image library will include several slides
for each organism to take into account differences in staining and/or structural
Macro shots of colony morphology, hemolysis, and biochemical
reactions will also be published because these are helpful for teaching
Good-quality 2x2" slides should be submitted for publication.
The slides will be scanned and returned to you within a week or so.
Send slides and the permission form (below) to:
Danny L. Wiedbrauk, Ph.D.

Individuals with slide scanning capabilities should scan
the images at 640x480 dpi at a resolution of 72 dpi. Save the image
as a JPG (or JPEG for Mac users) file with high resolution (resolution
