Did you know that students can check out anatomical models from the Hirsh Health Sciences Library? There are 42 body parts available for four-hour loans, including three pelvises and one knee.

The library’s skulls—the most in-demand item—were checked out a total of 189 times in October alone. Some are plastic and labeled, with or without attached muscles. Others are real.
