On June 22, the Health Sciences Library named an area of the Special Collections room to honor the contributions that Dr. Carl E. Bartecchi and his wife Kay have made to the Library. One of these contributions consisted of several hundred books published between the sixteenth and the twenty-first centuries from Dr. Bartecchi’s personal collection. Dr. Bartecchi donated these items to the library in 1998 and 1999. A selection of these books are on display in the exhibit case on the 3rd floor of the Health Sciences Library, just outside the room in which the Carl and Kay Bartecchi Special Collections Reading Area is located.
