Abstract


Have you ever seen a preserved newt in a jar? You will be shown a library guide that supports STEM education by providing true-to-life visual identification aids for species that students might never encounter in the field during the course of a semester. The guide includes easily accessible and easily navigable photo galleries that correspond with the presentation and organization of course materials. It offers greater exposure to the digital collections hosted by the East Texas Research Center and serves as an example for how digital image collections of flora and fauna may support a life sciences curriculum.
