“Everything Has Changed Forever, Again.” A book talk supported by the Amesee Collection at Health Sciences Library
The Health Sciences Library will be sponsoring a book talk as part of the endowed Amesse Collection of Popular and Leisure Reading. The talk is titled, “Everything Has Changed Forever, Again” (based on the book What would Google do?), featuring speaker Martin Garnar, MLIS. Mr. Garnar, a Regis University faculty member, will address the topic of how Google is changing the way we think about almost everything. The talk will take place Friday, November 18th, from 12:00-1:00 P.M. in HSL’s Teaching Labs 1 & 2.
The Health Sciences Library Amesse Collection, located in the leisure hub of the Information Commons on the first floor, contains a wide selection of popular reading material, including current novels, nonfiction, & biographies, as well as popular magazines and a “Medicine in the Movies” section of DVDs. The collection provides an opportunity to take a break from your busy day. Learn more about the Amesse collection from our resource guides.
Come listen to our speaker over lunch (bring your own, and some munchies will be provided), then relax for a few minutes in one of the leisure hub’s easy chairs!
For more information on this event, please contact Lynn Schwalm at email@example.com.

The Amesse Collection in the Health Science Library provides a leisure reading collection of novels, biographies, and nonfiction, as well as the Denver Post and a selection of popular magazines and newspapers. A small collection of movies on DVD is also part of the collection. Because of the Amesse family love of books, the reading area and collection is dedicated to three generations of Amesse family physicians. The collection has been moved to a central spot on the first floor of the library within the Information Commons.
The collection was originally established with books from John C. Amesse’s personal collection. Additional items are purchased from the Amesse Memorial Fund. The new dedicated space in the Information Commons on the 1st floor of HSL continues the tradition and resonates with the memory of John, his love of reading and the pleasures of a nook in a library. Each book in the collection bears a bookplate designed by Eleanor Benson and printed by Frederic Pannebaker, friends of the Amesse family. We hope this leisure hub provides a serene retreat from the hectic world of medicine, and, in so doing, keeps alive the memory and spirit of the Amesse family physicians. HSL proudly unveils the collection in a new location, a new space in the midst of the busy lives of our medical and health science students.
Every day hundreds of students work, study, collaborate, meet in groups, attend classes and learn in the information commons on the first floor of the library. With the Amesse collection in the heart of this fabulous first floor space, students will have opportunity to appreciate relaxation and browsing of a popular collection. Nearby in the new materials corner is an honor paperback collection — take one and go, no check out necessary. Materials from the main Amesse collection can be checked out at the service desk. The magazines of the collection do not circulate and are for in-house use only.
If you’d like to make a recommendation for the Amesse collection, please let us know. Take a break and visit the leisure hub in the Commons of HSL soon. first floor, room space 1304.
