Anatomizing the Library: Virtual Anatomy Table Services in an Academic Library
A growing number of academic, medical, and health sciences libraries are adopting 3D virtual anatomy tables (also known as virtual dissection tables) to support active learning initiatives within their anatomy educational communities. This article explores the implementation and management practices of virtual anatomy table (VAT) services offered by an academic library within a large public land-grant university system. The authors will share details surrounding their library's virtual anatomy table acquisition process and the development of VAT services for anatomy learners and instructors on their campus. This article will also discuss their VAT operational challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and highlight plans for VAT services at their library.
