The library will be closed on Monday September 2 in honor of Labor Day.
Due to high demand, the library has added two new video resources to the collection just in time for the start of the school year.
This video atlas was originally intended to be used by individual medical and dental students. Because of its realism, simple language, and three-dimensional quality, the Video Atlas has become popular with students and teachers in many other fields and also with people not on a professional learning path who are looking for information about human anatomy.
Part of the JoVE video journal suite, JoVE Neuroscience includes techniques from a wide variety of fields, focusing on those intended to lend insight into the structure, function, physiology and pathophysiology of the central and peripheral nervous systems.
An event will be taking place on the 6th floor of the library on Wednesday June 26 from 3 to 5 p.m. It is recommended that all studying take place on the 7th or 8th floors.
The library is currently offering a trial of two resources, helpful to both instructors and students. Please review these resources and let us know what you think.
Teaching Assistant is a presentation tool featuring thousands of stunning illustrations and clinical images from Gilroy et al. Atlas of Anatomy, Second Edition, which includes selected content from the Head and Neck Anatomy for Dental Medicine.
The Teaching Assistant platform enables instructors to enhance students’ learning experiences by incorporating dynamic visuals into lectures and course materials to present complex concepts with unprecedented clarity.
The Thieme Teaching Assistant allows you to:
- Export images as individual files or embedded into PowerPoint slides or PDFs
- Locate specific images using the search function
- Turn individual labels and leader lines “on” or “off” to prepare student study guides, handouts, tests and other materials for an individual image or a series of images
- Use the Teaching Assistant live in the classroom to magnify images and demonstrate

In the interest of saving space in the library and improving access to online content, the library has researched options for the purchase of the digital backfiles of highly used journals. Of particular interest are journals whose print volumes take up a large amount of space on the library’s shelves.
In addition to the Nature, Cell Press, and Science Direct backfiles that the library has purchased over the last several years, the archives of the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences(1877-2005), the Annual Reviews Biomedical Collection, and all sections of American Journal of Physiology have been added to the library’s digital collection. These backfiles are now available through the library’s catalog, journals a-z list, and GetIt@UNMC buttons in Pubmed.
Acquisition of the Annals of the New York Academy of Science was made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the McGoogan Library. American Journal of Physiology backfiles and Annual Review publications were supported by a one-time payment of UNMC student library fees.
