Save the date and help the staff of The Health Sciences Library celebrate our 5th anniversary on the Anschutz Medical CampusIn 1939 the Denison Memorial LIbrary was erected in its original site on the old campus at 9th Avenue and Colorado Boulevard with funds provided by the Denison family, a family of physicians. By the beginning of the school year 2007 we were a very lonely library as most of the schools and offices had relocated to the Anschutz Medical Campus.
You can imagine the logistics it takes to move an entire library! The staff worked for years planning the building and the move. Finally the time had arrived and October 15, 2007 The Health Sciences Library opened in its present location on the Anschutz Medical Campus. We couldn’t leave the whole building behind. We had to take a piece of it with us. While you are here, take the time to go to the socond floor and see the stained glass window with the Denison coat of arms that had been donated to us by the family and had been on display in the old Denison Memorial Library.
The celebration is from 11am-1:00pm on Monday, October 15 in the Health Sciences Library foyer. There will be food, drinks and free gifts. Come join the fun. Share and learn the secrets your library has to offer.

Last day of business for the Writing Center in the health sciences library was Tuesday, May 8th. Good news is that they will be back for fall term later this year!
Room 1204 in the Information Commons of HSL is available for group study anytime the Center is not open for business.
HSL celebrates students who use textbooks @ their library on a YouTube spot.

For the first few weeks the new MacBook Pro at the library will circulate for 4 hours, allowing throngs of mac-happy singletons to give it a whirl and share nice. Further down the road, say voices from inside the many study rooms in the info commons, HSL plans to circulate it for a slightly longer period and experiment. Along with the Macbook, a couple of Apple i-pads make up the emerging inventory of cool and nifty devices students and campus users can try out. Two dell laptops may also exist; “it’s being looked into” library insiders report; and various regulars at the library whisper that the dells are slightly outdated. Students who tend to like the quiet of the second floor and its east windows only mutter that the Dell laptops are good enough for a couple of hours of quiet work in the library with a cup of coffee courtesy of the Wolfgang Puck coffee machine on the first floor.
For details, stop at the desk and ask us anytime about any of this. And tell us what’s on your mind as a user of the library on the AMC.
“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!

Library users can now enjoy a late night cup of coffee from the Wolfgang Puck machine located on the first floor, southeast alcove just down the hall from the Writing Center and near the first floor restrooms.
Students have desired access to coffee during all library hours according to numerous surveys conducted by the health sciences library over the past two years.
Enjoy a quick cup the next time you are in the information commons of HSL.
