Welcome to the Anatomy and Physiology LibGuide.
On this page you will find links to the library's collection of ebooks, covering anatomy and physiology of the whole body, as well as that of individual body systems. There is also a collection of websites to support your learning. Some of these contain interactive features to test your learning. Lastly is a collection of videos that visually demonstrate A&P concepts.
Getting Started: The following ebooks (also included in the listings below) provide a good starting place for your study of Anatomy and physiology:
Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology, by Valerie C. Scanlon and Tina Sanders. 8th ed., F. A. Davis, 2019
Physiology, by Linda S. Costanzo. 6th ed., Saunders/Elsevier, 2018.
Gray's Anatomy for Students. by Richard L. Drake, A. Wayne Vogl, and Adam W. M. Mitchell. 4th ed., Elsevier, 2020.
Getting Around : You can scroll down the page or use the following links to find the resource you want.
For an extensive collection of medical illustrations illustrating the anatomy and physiology of the human body, check out the Netter Collection. This collection of ebooks includes illustrations of all parts of the body, many in conjunction with medical imaging. In addition, the images are used in the context of basic biomedical sciences and clinical medicine.
