UCalgary, UWindsor launch online repository that addresses lack of diversity in anatomy textbooks


The University of Calgary and the University of Windsor have launched an online repository of 64 original illustrations and 23 videos that represent the spectrum of human diversity. This initiative is part of the Anatomy Video and Imagery Diversity project, which seeks to address the lack of diversity represented in anatomy teaching materials. These visuals show complex networks of arteries in the face and body and detailed drawings of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems with variations in age, skin tone, ethnicity, and body size. The artwork is housed within UCalgary’s library digital collections and available for download at no cost.
