The term “open” has been heavily used in the past decade or more and can come with multiple interpretations: open access, open source, open textbook, open pedagogy … In general, “open” within these contexts implies unlimited, free, public access with the ability to manipulate and transform the educational content.Within the educational realm, we see even greater nuances of “open” in terms of how the access to and adapted creation work together. Our book aims to shed light on multiple definitions and how they are applied in a variety of learning experiences.Chapters provide case studies of library-teaching faculty collaborations that explore the intersecting roles and desired outcomes that each partner contributes toward student learning in an open environment.

The Lymphatic System of the Dog book cover

The Lymphatic System of the Dog

CC BY-NC-SA (Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike)  103 H5P Activities    English

Author(s): Hermann Baum

Editor(s): Kaelyn Bellamy, Monique Mayer, Leonie Bettin

Subject(s): Veterinary anatomy and physiology, Veterinary medicine

Publisher: University of Saskatchewan

Last updated: 08/02/2023

The book is organized into two main sections: the first details the anatomical location and drainage pathways of lymph nodes, while the second describes the lymphatic drainage pathways of major organs. This information is applicable to the diagnosis and treatment of canine patients as well as to researchers investigating the lymphatic system in dogs and in humans.

In addition to translating the original work, the University of Saskatchewan team of faculty and students has added notes describing key clinical points, as well as interactive student learning tools, including flashcards on lymphatic drainage patterns in canine cancer patients and lymph node labelling exercises. Our goal in translating this textbook was to honour the legacy of Dr. Baum’s extensive work and to make this valuable information freely accessible to English-speaking veterinary students, teachers, veterinarians, and researchers.

Diagnostic Imaging principles and concepts are augmented by the presentation of images for common clinical conditions. Guiding principles related to minimizing radiation exposure and requesting the most appropriate imaging examination are addressed.Static images are enhanced by the ability to access images stored and displayed on an Html-5 compatible, Dicom image viewer that simulates a simple Picture Archive and Communication system (PACS). Users can also access other imaging from the Dicom viewer (ODIN), beyond the basic curriculum provided, to further advance their experience with viewing diagnostic imaging pathologies.This book is also available in three other digital formats: ePUB (for Nook, iBooks, Kobo etc.), PDF (regular print), PDF (large print).
