Briscoe Library recently purchased an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset in order for students and faculty to interact with anatomy in new, immersive ways. The two experiences are: The Body VR and 3D Organon VR Anatomy. The Body VR allows the user to travel through the bloodstream to discover how blood cells function and how organelles work together to fight viruses. The 3D Organon VR Anatomy is described by Oculus as “the world’s first fully-featured virtual reality anatomy atlas.” The 3D anatomy models contain text descriptions for all male and female body systems. Contact John Weed at WeedJ@uthscsa.edu for more information.

Vote Held for Naming of New Space in the Library

A newly developed space in the Library seeks a new name!

The space, now filled with new furniture and technology, has been made possible thanks to student funds. In earlier communications, the space had been referred to as the Technology Sandbox, however, the Library would like to open up the choice to students and anyone else who would like to cast their vote.

Voting will be available from Friday, February 3, through Tuesday, February 7.

So far, the vote has brought up some interesting opinions!
