Spring Picks from the Strauss Library Staff

This spring, we asked the employees of the Strauss Health Sciences Library about some of their favorite springtime books, movies, podcasts, and other media. Here’s the collected list from our staff and faculty. If any of these catch your eye, you can request them via Prospector—the regional catalog connecting you to a wide range of libraries throughout Colorado and Wyoming—a free service for CU Anschutz students, staff, and faculty. Order your item on Prospector today, and we’ll let you know when it arrives! For more information, and to start using Prospector, visit: https://hslibrary.ucdenver.edu/prospector
