Announcing the DTBE Image Library!

DTBE is pleased to announce the availability of the DTBE Image Library. The Image Library is the result of the combined efforts of DTBE’s Communications, Education, and Behavioral Studies Branch (CEBSB) and CDC’s Public Health Image Library (PHIL). These collaborative efforts of CEBSB and PHIL were undertaken to promote the collection, sharing, and availability of images specific to TB-related subjects and to allow a wider variety of TB-related images to be available.

The DTBE Image Library has a variety of TB-related images that can be used to enhance presentations and publications. This resource can be used to search, store, organize, retrieve, and submit images that are specific to TB activities. The DTBE Image Library is composed of two parts: an Internet-based system that is available through PHIL to anyone with Internet access and houses most of the images available on the DTBE Image Library, and an Intranet-based system available only to DTBE staff. To access the Internet-based site and search for TB images or get additional information about PHIL, go to

Most of the images submitted to the DTBE Image Library will be available to all users through the PHIL site. The features of the Public Health Image Library can be found in the left navigation menu on the Internet. The menu choices are as follows:

Home page - Includes a brief introduction to PHIL.

Search (Quick, Advanced) - Allows users to search using keywords, image type, categories, or the image identification number.

About - Lists the sponsors, and gives a brief overview and acknowledgments.

FAQs - This section provides answers to questions users might have about the Image Library.

What’s New - Shows images recently added to the site.

Links - Provides urls for other online systems that may be useful.

Contact Us - This section allows users to provide comments or questions on technical issues to the PHIL team.

There is a “My Pictures” tab that will take users to the “My Pictures” page from the Homepage. The “My Pictures” page can hold images that users are considering or that are part of a collection of images to be included in a document or presentation. Items remain in “My Pictures” until the browser is closed. There is also a “Search Tips” tab that will go to the “Search Tips” page. This page gives detailed information on how to use the search features and get the best results.

If you are searching for a particular TB-related image and cannot find it in PHIL, please contact DTBE by e-mail at We may be able to help you locate an image that meets your needs. Also, please help us expand our Image Library collection by submitting your TB-related images to DTBE. Please send an e-mail message to and someone will contact you.

DTBE staff can access the site by clicking on the Image Library link in the right navigation menu on the DTBE Intranet Homepage.
