This month's PathMax Distinction Award goes to the designers of the web page entitled:

Bristol Biomedical Image Archive

The Bristol Biomedical Image Archive is a keyword-searchable database of 20,000 images relevant to the practice of medicine. A search of the database generates thumbnail-sized images which can be displayed and downloaded into webpages, computer aided teaching materials and PowerPoint presentations (subject to restrictions). The policy of the University of Bristol is to allow access to those who wish to use the slides for educational purposes--a very noble cause indeed!

This winning site demonstrates how well a very large image archive can be tailored to the web and how good-will among the educators at the University of Bristol serve all who wish to further the cause of medical education.
