ANATOMY

NLM Call Number Classification: QS


Anatomia: Anatomical Plates from the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, University of Toronto.
This collection features approximately 4500 full page plates and other significant illustrations of human anatomy. Each illustration has been fully indexed using medical subject headings (MeSH), and techniques of illustration, artists, and engravers have been identified whenever possible. There are ninety-five individual titles represented, ranging in date from 1522 to 1867.

Anatomy Atlas
Illustrations are lithographs – around 150 years old. A unique feature is the magnification tool that allows close-up inspection of individual sections of each anatomical region. Requires Apple QuickTime for magnification. A useful resource provided through the Virtual Hospital of the University of Iowa.

Anatomy of the Human Body
Frontiers in Bioscience has made it easy to view over 1,247 engravings of the human body from Henry Gray's classic textbook which is fully indexed and searchable.

Atlas of Human Anatomy in Cross Section
This work attempts to provide a high-quality color atlas of sectional anatomy in the axial plane. The authors believe photographic images offer the best means of correlation with radiologic images, and for that reason, drawings have not been used except as "key figures."

Basic Human Anatomy : A Regional Study of Human Structure "new" / by Ronan O'Rahilly, Rand Swenson, Fabiola Muller, Stanley Carpenter.
This online text is a revision of the text "Basic Human Anatomy" which was published in 1983 and now hosted at Darmouth Medical School.

GetBodySmart
This interactive project created and maintained by physiology professor Scott Sheffield attempts to provide a fully animated and interactive eBook about human anatomy and physiology.

Historical Anatomies on the Web
The History of Medicine Division of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) offers selected images from NLM's anatomical atlas collection, not the entire books, with an emphasis on images and not text. Atlases and images are selected primarily for their historical and artistic significance, with priority placed upon the earliest and/or the best edition of a work in NLM's possession.
