The Raynor Memorial Libraries provide access to four modules. Two of the modules provide broad views of human anatomy: one focuses on regions, or areas, of the body; the other focuses on functional systems of the body. Here is a sample of the contents of these two modules:

Regional Human Anatomy
  • Head and Neck
  • Spine
  • Thorax and Abdomen
  • Pelvis and Perineum
  • Shoulder
  • Hip
  • Hand
  • Foot
  • Knee
Systemic Human Anatomy
  • Skeletal System
  • Muscular System
  • Cardiovascular System
  • Lymphatic System
  • Nervous System
  • Endocrine System
  • Respiratory System
  • Digestive System
  • Hepatic System
  • Urinary System
  • Reproductive System

The other two modules focus on specific areas of human anatomy: the anatomy pertinent to dentistry, and the anatomy of physical movement. In addition to the visual material, the dentistry module has a clinical text section on teeth, dental anesthesia, examination, embryogenesis and other topics. Here's more about these modules:

3D Head and Neck Anatomy for Dentistry

This module includes 3D views of:
  • Head, neck, and face
  • Oral and nasal cavities
  • Dentition
  • Individual teeth in 3D and cross section
  • Nerves, larynx, pharynx, sinuses and more
  • Progressive dental diseases
  • Intraoral injections into nerves
Interactive Functional Anatomy

This module includes:
  • 3D muscle animations, primarily focusing on normal function
  • An interactive 3D skeleton with ligaments, muscles and vessels
  • 70 + animations of walking, running and jumping as well as fine motor movements

Depending on the specific module, you can:

  • Peel away layers, rotate anatomical models 360 degrees, and reconstruct layers
  • View animations of muscle function that illustrate the interaction of muscles, ligaments, and bones
  • Get a built-in study guide as well as self-assessment quizzes
  • Illustrate clinical relevancy of anatomy with descriptions by leading specialists, as well as dissection and pathology slides
