Banned Books Week


It's Banned Books Week. Have you read or are you reading a banned book now? You may be and not even know it. For instance, are you participating in the One Maryland One Book project and reading The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie? If you are, you are reading a banned book. Banned books are books that others have challenged or tried to censor because of their content. Since 1982, more than 11,000 books have been challenged. Celebrate your freedom to read by reading a banned book!

The Libraries acquire Anatomy.TV


As part of a grant from Holy Cross Hospital, the libraries were able to acquire Anatomy.TV.

ANATOMY.TV is a suite of 3D interactive models of human anatomy. Intuitive controls allow the user to zoom, rotate and peel away layers to educate and communicate with an ease and directness that was never possible with print. A wealth of supporting media, MRIs, X-rays, live-action movies and animations are also included to supplement Anatomy.tv's high resolution, computer-generated models.

Please go to http://mchoudini.montgomerycollege.edu:2048/login?url=http://online.statref.com/anatomy.aspx?grpalias=MontCol to access the database. Our subscription includes five simultaneous users.

To see other streaming video collections available from the libraries, please go to http://libguides.montgomerycollege.edu/videos.

For other resources on anatomy and physiology, please see http://libguides.montgomerycollege.edu/anatomy.
