● Anatomy Resources: If you need to review human anatomy, start at the home page listed above. On the left side of the page, look for (“Images and Videos”) under the Library Resources section. Resources are listed in alphabetical order. AnatomyTV is 3-D anatomy. You can rotate the body and view various layers, e.g. bones, nerves. MRI films are also available for viewing. If you “mouse” over a body region, you’ll see descriptive material displayed. The BioDigitial Human is also another 3-D anatomy program. It allows you to perform virtual “dissections.” You will need to register with your Rutgers e-mail address in order to use this product. Click on the link from the alphabetic list and scroll to the bottom of the page in order to register.
● History and Physical Examination: Under the “Images and Videos” link on the home page (see Library Resources section), you will see the Bates Visual Guide to Physical Examination. This resource presents a series of streaming videos on patients in various age groups, e.g. pediatric, adult, and geriatric.
● “Quick Links” section of the Smith Library Home page: We’ve listed some of our most popular resources Look for a link to PubMed there, as well as a link to EndNote, a software package which can be downloaded at no cost. The latter is useful if you are writing a paper and using a specific style for footnotes and bibliographies.
● Printing: The Smith Library has two printers which use the PaperCut software connected to the print quotas issued to every student.

It is possible to print if you are using a personal laptop; be sure to ask for special instructions at the Media Center.
● Access to Library E-Resources: You can access library e-resources from any computer connected to the Internet. If you are off-campus, you will be prompted to type in your NetID and secure password at the beginning of each new session. Always start your search at the Smith Library home page so that you will be able to authenticate with no problems.
● Hours: The Smith Library’s hours of operation are listed on the home page.
● How to Find an E-Book: Go to: “E-Books A-Z” under Library Resources.
● How to Find an E-Journal: Go to: “Electronic Journals A-Z” under Library Resources. This list will tell you if we subscribe to a journal. To find specific articles on a topic, try PubMed.
