Changes to Database Subscriptions

For the upcoming calendar year, the library will be discontinuing a few of our database subscriptions. These include the following products, which will cease availability 12/31/20:

EBSCO – Auto Repair Source
EBSCO – International Security and Counter-Terrorism Reference Center
Ovid – Visible Body
Proquest – SIRS KnowledgeSource

The decision to discontinue Visible Body was difficult, but Ovid increased the cost by over 400%. We have reached out to other vendors who offer similar products in content and quality and we have decided to purchase Primal Pictures instead.

Our subscription to Primal Pictures, which begins 1/1/2021, includes the Anatomy and Physiology, Functional Anatomy, and Dental Hygiene modules. You can find information about this database on their website, or review some of the tutorials below.

Primal Pictures 3D Atlas of Human Anatomy Quick Start Guide (covers 3D Atlas and Dental Hygiene)
Primal Pictures 3D Human Functional Anatomy Quick Start Guide
Primal Pictures 3D Human Anatomy & Physiology Quick Start Guide

For those still needing access, Visible Body has a course-based option available to professors through the bookstore for $49.99 per student. This allows students to access an unlimited number of courses during their two-year subscription and also download and keep the mobile versions of the program to continue to use in their curriculum.
