The Library of Biological Macromolecules is aimed at a better dissemination of information on three-dimensional biopolymer structures with an emphasis on visualization and analysis. It provides access to all structure entries deposited at the Protein Data Bank (PDB) or at the Nucleic Acid Database (NDB).
This website has an extensive amount of images of macromolecules. Though there are no real interactive portions of the site or instructions on the best way to navigate the site, there is certainly a lot of information to sort through. Proteins are sorted by size, or by alpha/beta, domain, or whether they are a surface/membrane protein. From there thousands of characterized protein structures are available in list format. References to the scientific paper in which the structure was ellucidated is included with each image. This provides the student with the ability to further their search on their protein of interest by investigating the provided reference material.

I spent about 5 minutes browsing this site, looking for materials for a bioinformatics course. This is a decent site for background information, tables and images. It does not contain prepared lecture materials or student-oriented problems to solve, but I don't think that this was the intention of this site. A good and accurate resource for upper level undergraduate or graduate courses.
