Shikes Medical Lecture Tickets Exhibit

Debra and Jessica just finished installing the new Shikes Medical Lecture Tickets Exhibit in the main lobby. This exhibit replaces the School of Pharmacy exhibit that has been in the display case previously.

The medical lecture tickets were recently digitized and added to the digital repository, Mountain Scholar. The tickets are part of the Shikes artifacts collection. Paul, who works with artifacts at Strauss library, selected items from the donation that could be digitized and uploaded into the repository.

For the exhibit, there are some tickets printed to fit a full sheet (the ones in the top two rows), and also some printed in their actual size (the bottom two rows. You can see what the tickets looked like for the medical students who used them!

Medical students would use these tickets to attend medical lectures. Once they had attended a number of lectures, they could graduate. The tickets show what the lecture topic was, and the doctor who was teaching the course. Sometimes the tickets had to be signed on the back by the instructor to verify that the student had attended the lectures.

Schedule of a student’s junior year

In the exhibit are also two course schedules, so you can these students’ schedules were like. There are receipts from students who paid for their class. In the center of the exhibit is also a card from a physician listing the classes he attended, as an advertisement of his expertise.

A student’s senior year schedule

You can see a selection of the medical lecture tickets in the exhibit, and please visit our digital repository to see the entire collection. We are working on digitizing items from the Shikes donation to the repository, please check back as we work on adding these to the repository!

Colorado Open Scholars 2019 Summit

On March 1, 2019 the Colorado Open Scholars had a virtual summit. The focus of the submit was “Openness in Tenure and Promotion” and featured two panels centering on issues of open scholarship as related to tenure and promotion as well as shifting ideas around equity and prestige. Below are a couple highlights from the summit.

The first panel, “Research Realities in Tenure and Promotion” (video timestamp: 3:37-57:43), a panelist mentions that quality of research is more important than whether or not the journal is open access. Ideally, authors can find reputable open access journals and that journal’s impact factor. It cannot be denied that an open access journal would have a broader audience than a subscription based journal because it is freely available on the web. Additionally, as it was discussion later in the panel, the reader of the article will probably not care where the article is published. The reader wants the content of the article whether it is published in The American Journal of Nursing (a subscription journal) or Nursing Open (an open access journal).

The second panel, “Open Access and Equity in Tenure and Promotion” (video timestamp: 58:15-1:47:30), began with a discussion of the work by tenure and promotion committees. It was urged by a panelist to “stay ahead of the curve. Don’t fall behind where science is going.” which refers to the increase and demand for openly scholarly works. A faculty member going through the tenure and promotion process should not have less value for publishing in an open access journal vs a subscription journal.

After the panels, participants discussed questions either at their viewing institution or online. You can view a summary of those discussions at the end of the video.

At the Strauss Health Sciences Library, we encourage open access publishing and, when allowed, we deposit Anschutz affiliates’ scholarly works into our institutional repository, Mountain Scholar. To find out more visit our LibGuide. You can download and view the video recording of the Colorado Open Scholars 2019 Summit here: https://digitalcommons.du.edu/co_Open_Scholarship/2/

This article was written by our Electronic Resources Librarian, Danielle Ostendorf. You can also access the video through Search HSL here.

Food Bank of the Rockies

Some of the staff at Strauss library visited the Food Bank of the Rockies on Friday, March 22, 2019. The staff participated in the annual volunteer event organized by the Stressbusters committee, as part of the CU in the Community volunteer drive.

(Left to Right): Blair (visiting from Welch Medical Library), Lisa, John, Melissa, Kristin,
and Lynn volunteer at the Food Bank of the Rockies.

Lisa (in the purple shirt) reported for the blog, “We worked with a group from another organization to pack boxes that were going to a program for senior citizens. Our group packed 334 boxes, with 9,686 lbs. of food. The resulting boxes were enough to provide 7,830 meals for a family of four or 31,318 meals for one person.” Great work everyone!

For more information about the Food Bank of the Rockies, you can check out their website here. You can also sign up to volunteer here!

Welcome to Kristin White!

Kristin White recently joined us here at Strauss library in the IT department. Her co-worker Kevin interviewed her to find out more about our new staff member:

1.What is your position title and/or interest in libraries?
My title is Web Applications Developer. I am interested in areas of libraries and information access.

2. What do you like most about it so far?
Everything! 😊

3. What is your educational background and what schools did you attend?
I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Metropolitan State University of Denver and my Master of Library and Information Science from the University of Denver.

4. What is your previous work experience?
I have been working as a Digital or Web Services Librarian since 2012. Website development piqued my interest while I was attending DU for my Masters. I have been working with websites and library access ever since.

5. What’s a fun/unique/interesting tidbit that you would like others to know about you?
My favorite places include Denver, The Netherlands, and Costa Rica. And, I think that dogs, alpacas, and llamas are the coolest animals!

6. How do you spend your free time?

7. Is there any additional information you would like to share about yourself?
I enjoy listening to all kinds of music and love to dance (not well, I am sure!) as much as I can.

8. What do you hope to gain from working at HSL?
I hope to gain a more in-depth understanding of the digital needs of the faculty, staff, students, and researchers at HSL. I also have a strong interest in web accessibility, so I would like to continue gaining more knowledge in this area as well as help HSL continue to ensure that the website is meeting the requirements of accessibility.
