Welcome to the DCTC Library's Anatomy & Physiology course guide. On this page you will find helpful information about the research and writing process, including links to help you evaluate and cite your sources.
The 2nd page has information about the resources in our library and how to find them using our catalog.
The 3rd page is a gateway to the Library's best online resources and web sites for this course, including some tutorials for these resources.
Let's get started!
In the Library
Use our catalog, OneSearch, to find the books and videos on our shelves, plus ebooks and streaming videos.
The best way to begin your search is to enter one or two keywords on your topic. To narrow your results, use the Modify My Results options on the left side of the screen. You can also click on a relevant title and click on one of its subject headings to focus your search on that particular topic.
Please ask a librarian if you need help locating anything you find in our catalog.
If we don't have the book, video, or article you're looking for, you can request it via interlibrary loan (ILL) and it will come to you. It's easy! E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you're looking for and we'll do the rest.
We have lots of books and videos about anatomy and physiology in our collection. If you like to browse, most of these are shelved in the QM call number range for anatomy and the QP range for physiology. Ask a librarian if you need help finding anything.
Here are just a few of our books about anatomy and physiology:
Behind the circulation desk we have our Course Resources collection. These are books and videos that instructors have asked us to reserve for certain classes. Books for Anatomy & Physiology courses include Hole's Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology, Understanding Human Anatomy and Physiology, and Human Anatomy & Physiology. Books on reserve must be used in the Library, except with permission from your instructor to check them out overnight. Ask a librarian if you're looking for one of these.
There are millions of full-text articles in our EBSCO, Gale, and ProQuest databases. The best way to begin your search is to enter one or two keywords on your topic. Each database is different, but there will be ways to limit and focus your results so that you find the most relevant and useful articles available.
Our EBSCO databases are an excellent place to start your search for magazine and journal articles.
Please visit the Library or e-mail email@example.com if you have any questions about our online resources or if you'd like help finding articles on your topic.
