Mark Hill (talk) 17:40, 18 January 2017 (AEDT) Yes they have done it again! UNSW Library textbook links changed for 2017. Let me know if I have missed any updates.

--Mark Hill 11:29, 24 February 2016 (EST) Added new links to Larsen's Human Embryology 5th ed and removed old The Developing Human 9th ed.

--Mark Hill 18:28, 28 December 2015 (EST) Links to the earlier (9th ed.) of The Developing Human still function, also available is the new (10th ed.) links listed below.

--Mark Hill 18:28, 28 December 2014 (EST) The University no longer has online student access to Larsen's Human Embryology by Schoenwolf, G.C., Bleyl, S.B., Brauer, P.R. & Francis-West, P.H. (2009).

--Mark Hill 15:38, 3 June 2012 (EST) Links to the earlier (8th ed.) of The Developing Human will no longer function.
