Anatomy Model Collection

The models were available to be moved around the library by the patrons, which was damaging to the models. Our best practices suggest having a designated place for the models so that they are not dropped often which will in the long run lessen the wear and tear. 

Our hope in publishing these materials is that others can benefit.
