Have you met Homer?

For some reason, students have started to call the Library’s skeleton Homer.

Yes, there is a skeleton in the Library. We also have models of the eye, ear, muscles, etc.

The Library added these anatomical models to our Reference collection to help students who need to study outside of their anatomy labs.

So stop by, say Hi to Homer, drag him to a table or into a Study Room if you want to practice identifying femurs or tibias.

He’s happy to help (well, actually, the librarians are happy to help).
