The use of human cadaveric dissection became a tool for teaching anatomy at the University of Montpellier in 1350, and became a fully sanctioned and regular part of anatomy education at the University of Paris in 1407.
By the mid-1800s, dissection to teach anatomy was key to medical education. Although there are several other ways to study anatomy, from books to virtual reality, research shows that dissection is invaluable.
Besides the anatomical knowledge gained, it is important in training empathetic physicians.

The new PubMed is going live this month! Are you ready?
We will use this space to keep you updated on the changes that occurring and provide tips and tricks for using the new interface. You can interact with the beta version of the new PubMed by visiting PubMed Labs. As you use the new interface, please provide NLM with your PubMed Labs Feedback as they will continue to make improvements to the interface until it becomes the default in January 2020.
Keep in mind that the beta interface is not currently a replacement for the current version of PubMed since it is not the complete database in regards to content or functionality yet.
Here are the most recent features that have been added to the new PubMed interface:
Filters have been added to narrow results by article type, text availability, publication date, species, language, sex, subject, journal category and age.
The Health Sciences Article Linker has been added! You can now get to our library holdings from the beta PubMed version.
Keep an eye on the library homepage for information about the new PubMed and quick links to access the site.

In Fall/Winter 2019, PubMed will be undergoing some changes to the interface. If you want to see some of the changes that are coming before the current version of PubMed is replaced, you can visit PubMed Labs, the experimental platform that has some of the major updates already available.
Wondering what’s new? Here are some of the updated features:
Enhanced Search Results
The new version of PubMed (currently PubMed Labs) will have an enhanced relevant sort option, named Best Match, that ranks search results according to several relevance signals, including an article’s popularity, its publication date and type, and its query-document relevant score.
The search results page will now automatically include highlighted text fragments from the article abstract that are selected based on relevance to the search.
Have you ever tried to use PubMed on your phone or tablet? The current version doesn’t work very well, but the new version of PubMed will feature a mobile-first responsive layout that offers better support for smaller device screens. The new interface will be compatible with any screen size no matter how you access PubMed.
Fall finals are coming—but so are the Alliance of Therapy Dog teams!
Join us at the Strauss Health Sciences Library on December 4th from 11:30am – 1:30pm in the student lounge to PAWS and relax! This was a very popular activity at the library’s spring DeStress@Strauss event, so we’re bringing it back.
In May, we had 86 visitors, of whom 51% reported “no stress” after visiting with the dog teams. 20 of you requested dogs “All the Time.” Well, we can’t do all the time, but we can do December 4th!
