For anytime, anywhere access from your computer, smartphone, or tablet to more than 300 3D rotational gross anatomy videos featuring real cadaver specimens using Acland's Video Atlas of Human Anatomy. The specimens have not been embalmed and therefore retain the colour, texture and mobility of the living body.
Before you start searching the databases, it helps to take time to plan your search.
Step 1: Clearly define the topic or research question
Step 2: Divide the topic or question into separate key concepts
Step 3: Select alternative search terms and synonyms for each concept
Step 4: Consider using text word symbols such as truncation and "phrase searching"
Step 5: Select search terms to combine using Boolean logic - AND, OR, NOT
Step 6: Select relevant databases via the Library homepage or your Subject Guide
Step 7: When searching a database look for subject heading options
Step 8: Run text word searches to complement subject heading searches
Step 9: Review the results and modify your search strategy as required
