About the Anatomy & Physiology Guide

Life sciences comprises the study of all branches of knowledge concerned with the scientific study of life and living organisms, including microorganisms, plants, animals, and human beings. The Holy Family University Library's life sciences resurces include printed books, but the strength of our collection lies in our digital resources, where you will find up-to-date articles, images, and video. This guide also provides links to a number of valuable non-Library web sources.

If you're here because this is your first foray into scholarly research, begin with a review of our "Doing Library Research" guide, or just jump right in and explore our databases. Additionally, the HFU Library is fully staffed with librarians who are always happy to work with you. Get in touch!
