​PubMed is a massively comprehensive medical database maintained by the National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health. It covers the entire spectrum of health science subjects as well as healthcare policy, community health, and administration. 

It's recommended that scholars and practitioners make use of the complete PubMed platform, which can be accessed at either of the two URLs:


Acland's:

Acland's Video Atlas Logo

Acland's Atlas of Human Anatomy presents dissections of unembalmed human bodies, allowing access to specific content through indexes and keyword searches. The specimens rotate relative to the camera, giving a three-dimensional view. 

Students and employees at PBC have full access to Acland's.

 

Books at PBC Library

As an integrated facility serving two universities, PBC Library houses physical collections purchased by both Northern Arizona University (NAU) and University of Arizona (UA) to support PBC programs.  Students in any PBC program may check out any of our 1,000 items.

Our physical collections are displayed together in UA's online catalog at ahsl.arizona.edu

Our electronic collections (e-books) are displayed in separate catalogs:

Finding Visual Media at NAU:

NAU hosts a number of streaming media sites as well as image collections. Other than MEDLINE Plus, all video streaming sites require login with NAU credentials.
