New Book Shelf at HSL for the week of December 3, 2018

School of Pharmacy Exhibit and Collection

2018 School of Pharmacy exhibit

The School of Pharmacy exhibit in the main entryway.

 

You may have noticed in the main entryway the new School of Pharmacy exhibit. This exhibit features items from the new School of Pharmacy archives collection at HSL.

HSL has been working with the School of Pharmacy to digitize their archive. The School of Pharmacy has deposited physical items into the archive at HSL, and HSL has added digital-only items to the digital repository.

The Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences archive collection includes the School of Pharmacy newsletters (Pharmacy Perspectives, e-Scripts, Materia Medica, and School of Pharmacy News), the class photos, commencement programs, historical meeting minutes, historical prescription sheets, and the theses and dissertations, which have been housed in the digital repository prior to the project.

The exhibit in the main entryway has two examples of the Pharmacy Perspectives and School of Pharmacy News newsletters each, and printouts of other items in the collection. The yellowish printouts in the center are examples of the historical prescription sheets, with printouts of the commencement programs on the left in black and pink, and in between smaller versions of the class photos. On the right, there are printouts of the historical meeting minutes.

HSL is still working on digitizing the School of Pharmacy News newspapers and the class photos. Please check out the exhibit in the main entryway, and go to the repository to see the digitized materials. There will be more materials in the future!

HSL Christmas and Mitten Trees

The employees at HSL put up the two Christmas trees last Friday.

The first tree is the Annual Mitten Tree at HSL. There’s only lights on this tree so that you can put your donations of mittens, gloves, hats, scarves, and socks as decorations! Please donate items to decorate our tree!

The staff had some difficulty getting the lights to work on this tree. We had to add additional lights since the lights that come on the tree are not working.

Kevin had the challenge of installing the star on the top of the tree. He is the tallest so he was nominated for the job! He did a great job making the star look nice on the top of the tree.

 

 

 

 

 

The second tree is in the reading room on the third floor. The staff decorated this tree with ornaments collected throughout the years, and another star on the top too.

Got this image of the mitten tree from the outside of the library, while it was snowing on Friday afternoon.

Goodbye to Tech Services

Today was the last day of my internship in Tech Services which means this will be my last post. Since late September I have spent 120 hours learning everything I could about Tech services and how books are organized and cataloged at Anschutz Health Sciences Library two and a half hours at a time and I’ve shared some of what I’ve learned with you.  Most of my time was spent going through boxes of books donated when the Denver Medical Library (DML) closed. Any book that was donated but we already had a copy of was not added to the collection, but any books not already part of Anschutz collection I cataloged and processed. Weather it was cataloged or weeded I removed a cataloging card from every book I worked with. This picture is every cataloging card I removed.

Some of the books I cataloged during my internship are now on display in the second floor rotunda. Three of the items on display in the rotunda are pamphlets that I digitized in addition to cataloging. The Health Science Library is part of Mountain Scholar which is the home site where a collection of Universities keep their digital archives. The whole of Anschutz digital collection can be accessed here.  The three items I digitized are Colorado Some Pictures and a Few Facts which is the program for the 51st American Medical Association meeting which happened in Denver in 1898, and includes a picture of the CU Boulder campus in 1898. Division of Venereal Disease published by the Colorado State Board of Health in 1923 and contains the laws of the state on the treatment, quarantine, and required reporting practices of Colorado. And Standardization of Blood Pressure Readings which was published in 1939 by the American Heart Association and the Cardiac Association of Great Britain and Ireland. In addition to acting as a digital archives for special collections Mountain Scholar also has Thesis and Dissertations from past Anschutz students.

I have learned a lot during my time in Tech Services, and hopefully these blog posts have taught you a bit more about how the library functions and maybe even about the resources available to you through the library.

Confronting Violence, Improving Women’s Lives

The exhibit is on the 1st floor of the Strauss Health Sciences Library and is on display November 19, 2018 to January 5, 2019.

Confronting Violence Poster

Activists and reformers in the United States have long recognized the harm of domestic violence and sought to improve the lives of women who were battered. During the late 20th century, nurses took up the call. With passion and persistence, they worked to reform a medical profession that largely dismissed or completely failed to acknowledge violence against women as a serious health issue. Beginning in the late 1970s, nurses were in the vanguard as they pushed the larger medical community to identify victims, adequately respond to their needs, and work towards the prevention of domestic violence. This is their story.
