Abstract

When the author refers to an anatomy or anatomical sciences learning resource centre ('Anatomical Sciences Learning Resource Centre') he is visualizing a real teaching space which may or may not be augmented by a virtual space and resources. It is pertinent when considering the scope of such a centre to establish whether one is referring to 'anatomy' in its broadest context - probably more correctly called 'anatomical sciences' (development/ embryology, histology, neuroanatomy, and topographical or 'gross' anatomy) or in the more restrictive sense of topographical anatomy alone. In this chapter I will primarily focus on human topographical anatomy but will give examples of how a resource centre could easily be expanded to include resources that cover the broader scope of the discipline.
