The Visual Resources Center is excited to announce its upgraded SVA Image Library (MDID). While we understand it's a change and will take some getting used to, it is an overall improvement due to new features paired with a cleaner, intuitive user layout. That said, we are hoping you will check it out and let us know if there are any tweaks you would like to recommend or issues you encounter with the new platform so we can further refine it.

We have thus updated the MDID guides and tutorials.

Email any and all questions, comments or concerns to Tessa Morefield ( or Lorraine Gerety (

Happy Image Searching!
