Project SEARCH Visits Strauss Library

Strauss Library was happy to welcome a group from Project SEARCH on January 11th, 2019. Project SEARCH is an employment training program for students with significant disabilities. The group that visited was from Children’s Hospital Colorado. You can also read more about that national Project SEARCH program here.

The group took a tour of the library, including visiting the special collections room and InWorks. Lisa Traditi, the deputy director at Strauss library, led the tour starting at the circulation desk.

In the special collections room, Emily and Jessica presented rare books to the group, and Paul showed them a set of items from the artifacts collection.

Welcome to Ty’Esha at Pascal!

Strauss Health Sciences Library is happy to welcome our new PASCAL employee, Ty’Easha Fenderson! Check out her photo and some questions we asked her to get to know her better.

  • Would you like to talk about where you are from?

I was born in Frankfurt, Germany due to my family being in the service. I was raised in Denver, Colorado but I just moved from Colorado Springs back to Denver.

  • Would you like to talk about your family?

I am married with two kids. My babies are 3 years old (Lailah) and 1 year old (Ty’Len). I have been with my husband Quinn for 8 years and married 5 years.

  • What things do you NOT like to do?

I do not like to do anything concerning ANY type of insect and that includes killing them. I hate bugs.

  • What’s your favorite movie?

I have many favorite movies so choosing one will definitely be hard. I absolutely love Norbit, The Little Rascals, and Hocus Pocus.

  • If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I would go to Germany of course, it looks beautiful and I’d like to participate in some of their traditions, taste the food just visit their culture for a little while since I was born there and have no idea what it’s like.

Ty’Esha will be at the PASCAL location on campus. If you’re curious about what PASCAL is, you can read more about it here, or visit their website here.

Staff Holiday Celebrations!

The Strauss Health Sciences Library staff holiday party was this Tuesday! The staff had a potluck, with everyone bringing great dishes!

We started the party off with a round of holiday movie trivia, a guessing game for holiday carols, and a round of door prizes for all staff in attendance.

Director Melissa De Santis also used this time to recognize and celebrate staff members with 5, 10, 15, or 20 years of service to the University of Colorado system.

Recognizing Thinh Le, Senior Systems Administrator in Information Technology for 20 years with the University of Colorado!

To wrap up the party, people passed out their Secret Santa gifts, and a few daring individuals took part in a fun game of White Elephant!

The leopard-print “Slanket” was a hotly contested item in the White Elephant gift exchange.

In all, it was a great way to get the whole staff together to unwind, celebrate our accomplishments, and start looking forward to the new year!

Shikes Medical Lecture Tickets

Some of the staff at HSL recently began working on digitizing the Shikes paper items from the Shikes medical artifacts donation. The items are in the process of being digitized and added to the Mountain Scholar digital repository. So far, you can see the medical lecture tickets in the repository.

HSL accepted these items as a donation from Dr. Robert H. Shikes in 2015.  All the items were collected by him over years.  Dr. Shikes is Professor Emeritus, SOM, Department of Pathology, and authored Rocky Mountain Medicine: Doctors, Drugs, and Disease in Early Colorado, University of Colorado of Medicine: A Centennial History 1883-1983 with Henry N. Claman, and University of Colorado of Medicine: A Millennial History with Henry N. Claman

Check out the gallery of the Medical Lecture Tickets:

Paul Andrews, who works with the artifacts here at HSL, proposed the project since the paper items are great additions to HSL’s repository. Check back as the staff work on digitizing the other paper items, including advertising materials, photographs, and postcards!
