As I added the post this week about Wellcome Images, I realized that I have quite a number of images pages tucked away in my Diigo account. I’d found them and saved them there so that I wouldn’t lose them.
But, I’m really hard pressed to come up with the names of all of the places I’ve used. There’s MorgueFiles, Unsplash, New Old Stock, that come immediately to mind but I know darn well there are more. What to do; what to do. Finding or curating resources isn’t terribly productive if you lose them.
Time for some coffee.
I started poking around inside Diigo and, yeah, I’d found a couple more.
Now, my GECDSB friends would know what I’d done in the past. I would have created a page of these resources and linked to them from my Portal Page.
I thought that I’d take a different approach. I logged into my Symbaloo account and created a page of the resources. In that way, the list is easily available from my Symbaloo account. They’re just a click away.
When I was done, I was blown away with the collection. It’s diverse and most of the images are free or free to use under a Creative Commons license.
Since I’d already done the semi-hefty living, I decided to share the link with you in case you’re interested. It’s available here.http://www.symbaloo.com/mix/imagesresources.
Symbaloo remains one of my favourite utilities for presenting results for a particular purpose like this. Neat and simple, and very effective.
If you have a Symbaloo account, you’re more than welcome to add this collection to your account. I can only see the collection growing.
