One of the newest databases that the Weinberg Memorial Library has added—the Visible Human Body Atlas—is an interactive database published by Wolters Kluwer. The database contains interactive anatomy and physiology learning and visualization content that includes 3D models, illustrations, and even animations. This database can be accessed from the A-Z list of databases, and from the Biology, Exercise Science & Sport, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Stream Media databases by subject guides.
In this database, students can explore the human body up close by looking at different body systems and regions of the body. Users of this resource can rotate the body, zoom into an area, and read explanations about different parts of the body and body functions. In addition to providing 3D models, illustrations, animations, and images of the human body, this interactive resource even includes encyclopedic anatomy reference content that provides information on every bone, muscle, and organ in the human body. If you are looking to learn more about the human body and its complexities, then look no further. This database is the place to start as it has the entire body mapped out in a way that will allow students to travel inside the human body to learn through interaction and simulation that this learning tool provides.
