Featured Database: Human Anatomy Atlas from Visible Body
You can use databases to easily find organized collections of articles, journals, news, streaming videos, primary sources, data, and more!
Here’s one of our newest databases:
What’s in it?
Visible Body’s Human Anatomy Atlas is a digital collection of anatomy, physiology, and pathology visualizations and animations. The atlas includes comprehensive male and female 3D gross anatomy models, selected micro-anatomy of tissues and organs, cadaver slices and diagnostic images that are paired with 3D cross-sections, and interactive animations of all systems such as muscles and bones.
Why should you use it?
The app allows you to watch and stop motion/animations. You can also save annotated images, if you create a personal account. These images and animations are generally not available on the web and are not indexed in Start My Research.
Who should use it?
You can use it anywhere and anytime as a study aid to supplement the physical models available in the library or in your lab. There are also quizzes and lab activities in the app. You can take notes on an image to reinforce learning. People using physiology from artists to trainers can find and examine all aspects of human anatomy.
Why use a database?
When you use a specific database, rather than a search engine or discovery tool, you often can find more relevant sources. For example, subject databases include sources about that subject only, rather than a general search engine or discovery tool that includes information about everything. This way you don’t have to wade through thousands of irrelevant results!
