Anatomy & physiology resources


Detailed knowledge of anatomy and physiology is essential for sports therapists. The library has a number of resources to help you with this.


The library has multiple print copies of all the major anatomy and physiology textbooks you will need. You will find these in the Luton Campus Library at classmark 612. The Bedford Campus Library also has many anatomy and physiology textbooks, so remember you can always reserve books from other campuses if you cannot find what you need on the shelves at Luton.

Medical dictionaries and encyclopaedias

If you need to look up a definition or you are unsure about a particular condition or injury, you could try Credo Reference. Credo Reference is a collection of online reference material including several medical and health resources.
