Remembering Robert Acland


A meeting with a representative from Ovid, a leader in the provision of health and medical resources, has left me feeling somewhat reflective today, so I thought I’d share. Back in October, I brought the exciting news that the library now had access to Acland Anatomy: read the original blog entry here.

Today I learned that the man behind this fascinating resource died in January this year. It’s amazing that the ingenuity of this man – and his students, who were the driving force behind the concept of Acland Anatomy – led to the creation of a vital and most unique electronic resource. He was a pioneer, and it’s great that we have access to the resource that was the result of his work.
