Witness to the Holocaust: Sculpture dedication and panel discussion

Two events that are part of this year’s Holocaust Genocide and Contemporary Bioethics Program will take place in the Strauss Health Sciences Library.  The Program is an annual event that is organized by the Center for Bioethics and Humanities.  The Program’s goal is to promote education, scholarship, and community engagement on the lessons of the Holocaust.  All Program events are free and open to the public.  This year the Program includes events at all four CU campuses and a session at UCHealth.

The events in the Strauss Library will be held on April 30th.  There will be a dedication event at Noon on the 3rd floor for the Devorah Sperber sculptures “Witness to the Holocaust”.  The dedication will be followed by a panel discussion at 1:00 pm in the Reading Room.  The topic for the discussion is “Health Professionals, Patients and the Public Trust”.  Reservations are requested, but not required.  We hope you can attend one, or more, the events!

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.

New Military Medicine Exhibit on the 1st Floor

The Rare Materials Collection of the Strauss Health Sciences Library includes many titles illustrating the history of military medicine, including histories, memoirs, and biographies, manuals and handbooks, regulations, and more. A small selection of works which influenced the development of military medicine in the United States and illustrate its history is featured in the exhibit case at the north end of the 1st floor, near the elevator and Teaching Lab 3.



The work of Henry Ingersoll Bowditch, including the publication of this pamphlet following the death of his son at the Battle of Kelly’s Ford, Virginia, facilitated the creation of ambulance service for the entire Union Army.
