E-Resource of the Month – 3D Organon (Virtual Reality)

Are you looking for an interactive way to learn anatomy? 3D Organon Anatomy is a comprehensive anatomical atlas featuring all 15 human body systems. It includes more than 4,000 realistic anatomical structures and organs and over 160 frequently encountered clinical correlations organized per system. And the best part, you can see it through virtual reality! The app allows you to toggle between body systems, locate body parts and learn pronunciations, watch animations of bones and joints., hide/fade features and organs, and fully navigate around the human body.

You are able to view 3D Organon at any time by checking out the VR headset from the Library Circulation Desk. Would you like to bring in a group of friends or an entire class? The Hub can be reserved, just like any other room in the library. Visit our Room Reservation system to set up a time. Walk ins are also welcome and available. View our libguide for more information.

Medical School Yearbooks Banner showing yearbook photos from the 1970s

Yearbook Project

The first yearbook of the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio was published in 1970. It was titled Curandero, which is the Spanish term for healer. The yearbook was subsequently published under the following titles: Aesculapius (1981-82, 1984-90, 1992-present); Grand Rounds (1983); and Caduceus (1991). To our knowledge, yearbooks were not produced for all years. Yearbooks were not produced from 1974-1976, and 1976-1980. The yearbooks are a product of the student association and are designed by the fourth year medical students.

All of the yearbooks in the Digital Archive are either owned by the UT Health Science Center Libraries, or have been loaned to the library for digitization purposes. Years 1987, 1988, 1990, 1991, and anything more recent than 2011 are currently missing from the Digital Archive; if you have a copy of any of these years and would like to lend it to the library for digitization, please contact the Digital Archive Team at DigitalArchive@uthscsa.edu.

Class Photos Project

The first class picture for the School of Medicine at the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio was taken in 1970 of the first graduating class. The class pictures hung for many years in the hallway of the Medical School near the Medical Dean’s office.  They were donated by the Dean’s office to the University Archives in 2014 and have been digitized for inclusion in the Digital Archive. Pictures for graduating classes for the years 1979-1981, 1984, 1987, 1999-2002,  and 2012-2014 are currently missing from the Digital Archive; if you have a copy of any of these years, or a better copy of those we do have, and would like to lend it to the library for digitization, please contact the Digital Archive Team at DigitalArchive@uthscsa.edu.
