Using Models @ RowanSOM Library

  • Most RowanSOM Anatomy Models are kept on the table across from the Front Desk or on top of the short glass cabinet in the middle of the library.  They may be used anytime.  We ask that you return the model to its original location after use.
  • Some models (those with a lot of loose parts) are kept in the glass case beside the Front Desk or behind the Desk.  Ask for these at the Front Desk, and we'll hold your Rowan ID while you use the model. 
  • The models are tagged with QR codes which link to the correlating section of Netter Atlas of Anatomy, or in some instances an alternative text.
  • Models must be used in the library (except male and female torsos)
  • Students may use 1 model at a time
  • We ask that users be conscious of others who may be waiting to use a model and limit your use to periods not exceeding 2 hours.

Finding Ebooks and Ejournals

The best way to find Ebooks is with the Medical Ebooks Search.  There are subject sets for public health and for epidemiology, so start by picking the one most likely to contain your topic, or search by typing a keyword in the box.  

You can also search in the library catalog, click the "Library Search" tab, enter your keyword, and use the filters to narrow the results to certain campus locations, or to electronic resources.

Find the Ejournals by searching for a title word. Consider related terms that might be useful.  To narrow your retrieval, choose more specific terms; to broaden your search, think of umbrella terms that are on topic but less specific. Remember, you are only searching the title of the journal, not for individual articles (see PubMed for that).
