This project sought to develop a creative and unique way to engage health sciences graduate students, using physical library space at the San Marcos Campus Library of the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences to support an exhibit. The exhibit was developed under the guiding theoretical frameworks of critical theory, critical librarianship, and Falk and Dierking's Contextual Model of Learning. This poster focuses on San Marcos Campus Library's Fall 2019 exhibit on Renaissance-era anatomical illustrations and its coinciding sociocultural history of human anatomy to introduce students to a self-guided learning journey. Preliminary qualitative data showed a positive reception to the project by students, faculty, and staff as an engaging discourse about human anatomy.
