Students, staff and researchers now have access to detailed visual anatomy and physiology information via two new pieces of software:
Anatomy and Physiology
A visual step-by-step guide to each human body system: cells and tissues, integumentary, skeleton and joints, muscle types, nervous, endocrine, circulatory, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive.
Human Anatomy Atlas
A comprehensive 3D atlas of the human body featuring gross anatomy lab, microanatomy of senses and tissue types, muscle actions and augmented reality feature for mobile devices.
You can connect directly over the internet to the software as websites or download apps to mobile devices for offline use.
Using images: Through the software, high quality images can be downloaded for use in presentations, posters, written work, etc.: so long as you give clear acknowledgement of the source of the images. Images can be manipulated (rotate, zoom in, hide content) to present them precisely as you what prior to download.
An instruction guide is available on the Library and Learning Services website here: https://tinyurl.com/vbdmu and attached to relevant Subject Guides. The guide has access information to the website and download app versions, with instructions in how to download images and citing/referencing them.
Staff training sessions in using the software will be set-up and advertised shortly. In the meantime if you have any questions in using the software, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.

First incarnation awaiting update
Some users experienced problems trying to get through by telephone during the first part of Friday morning, 29th March. This was due to an overnight power outage in parts of campus that had a knock-on effect on some university systems, including telephones. This has been successfully resolved, apologies if you experienced any problems getting through to us first thing.
Some inspiring quotes for International Women’s Day!
Rosa Parkes – African American Civil Rights Activist
“You must never be fearful for what you are doing when it is right”
Sylvia Nalubega – Women supported Activist in Uganda
“What motivates me is when others support us. To know we are not alone in our desire to see all women empowered and live to their full potential”

Celebrating all women – whatever you do, wherever you are!
The new updated library website pages are complete, and we are pleased to say that the website is ready for you to use and familarise yourself with.
There are a few tweaks that we are still working on which will be complete very soon.
Both the current library website and these new updated pages will be running in parallel at this point to give you the opportunity to become familiar with the new layout and structure.
We plan to switch over to the updated library web pages in summer 2019 with these pages becoming the default library web pages. You may notice that some links from the current library website take you to the new updated library website pages, due to the original format moved to the new format.
We hope to provide a series of short videos and blog posts giving you overviews of each section in the updated library website to help you navigate your way through the new structure. We hope you spend time using the new updated library website and would like to hear any feedback you may have. Were grateful for the contribution and support of our library colleagues and the feedback you have provided to make this happen!
