Based on numerous requests from students, the Health Sciences Library has made a refrigerator available to library users. This is a pilot to see if a fridge will be used, what size fridge might be needed, and if the fridge can be kept clean.
The fridge is located on the 1st floor of the Health Sciences Library in the same space as the vending machines and the microwave. The library is not responsible for items placed in the fridge. All items should be dated as the fridge will be emptied every Sunday. Items with no date on them, or that are older than a week, will be thrown away.
If you have questions or would like more information please contact the Health Sciences Library at (303) 724-2152 or AskHSL@lists.ucdenver.edu.

Artwork produced by the students and teachers of Aurora Public Schools (APS) is now on display in the Library’s 3rd floor Gallery. Thirteen schools grades K – 12 are participating as well as some of the art teachers. All artwork in the exhibit is for sale and profits from the sale of student art pieces go directly to the students. The exhibit will be on display through March 23, 2011.
Everyone is invited to an Opening Reception that will take place on Wednesday February 16 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm.
Stop by the Gallery and check out the amazing art the students from Aurora Public Schools have created!

“Over the past sixty years there have been many medical innovations at the University of Colorado, School of Medicine. From the development of the heart lung machine; the first successful double lung transplant on a cystic fibrosis patient in Colorado; the first pancreatic transplant in Colorado to cure diabetes; the first living-related liver transplant in Colorado and one of the first living-donor liver transplants in the country. The department used the first grooved needle invented by a University nurse, and was the first to use GORE-TEX as a vascular graft, to name a few. Not only will those in the medical field find this book of interest, but those outside of the medical field will find Dr. Paton’s style enjoyable to read.”
