One particular item you will want to check out: A.D.A.M. An anatomy CD-Rom
with an authoring system available. Use all standard images and
explanations of the CD and add your own. Cheapest version $150, complete (I
seem to remember free of copyrights, ie. you are allowed to use the images
for your own readers) version up to $4000. This were last year prices. runs

The (zoology?) dept of biology of the University of Amsterdam has developed
a multi-media CD which contains a complete classification system of birds.
More a biology than an anatomy item.
