We have skeletons!

Anatomical models (Bones) are available for use in the Life Sciences Library located on the 4th floor of the Paterno Library. They may be checked out using your Penn State ID card; they must remain in the library, and be returned within two hours. There are fully dis-articulated skeletons, skulls, one leg (hip to foot), one knee joint, an ear, and an eye. We also have models fo the leg and arm showing muscles and the circulatory system.

Search for anatomy books via The CAT using the following words: Human anatomy, Human physiology, or Anatomy. If the letter Q follows the call number it means the book is taller than average and will be shelved in a different location (on the 4th floor of Paterno Q books are shelved in the back of the room at the end of the "S" call numbers). An example would be: QM7.V58 1996 Q. Books may be available at other Penn State Library locations, or in the general Paterno stacks, and can be checked out for your normal loan period.
