The Reproductive Physiology Animations Collection, which contains learning modules on human reproduction from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, has been added to the OhioLINK Digital Media Center. The collection is the fifth addition to the DMC’s Science Collections database. It is freely available to anyone worldwide.
Thirty modules are currently available in the collection, and more will be added in March 2005. The modules are animated and some have sound. Users may stream the animations or download them for educational use. The animations are played via Macromedia Flash Player, which is pre-installed on most Web browsers. For more information on viewing the modules see the collection description.

La Barbera, PhD, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Professor of Molecular and Cell Physiology; Karen Marsh, MILS, MBA; Brendan Bruce; Kyle Sliney; and Ryan Yearwood.
