For Your Enjoyment: Color Our Collections

Normally, altering pages of the library’s rare treasures is discouraged, but six images from books in the Health Sciences Library’s Rare Materials Collection are now available for coloring. Many printed illustrations, especially those published before 1800, were intended to be hand-colored, and we invite you to do that. The images have been uploaded to the library’s Facebook page.

These images were selected as part of the Color Our Collections event, February 1-5, 2016, led by the New York Academy of Medicine. Libraries, museums, and other cultural institutions from all over the world have made public domain images from their collections available on social media using the hashtag #ColorOurCollections.

You are invited to browse, download, and color any images you like, and if you are so inclined, please share your creation on social media with the hashtag..

Hey Students! Don’t forget about Interlibrary Loan!

As a student on the Anschutz Medical Campus, you’re going to be doing a lot of research. And while the library has access to thousands of journals and books, it certainly doesn’t have everything that you may require. But don’t let that limit you! The Interlibrary Loan Department can help you obtain the materials that you need!

If you’re a student of the AMC, the services provided by Interlibrary Loan (ILL) are at no direct cost to you! Simply sign up for an ILLiad account and begin placing requests immediately for articles, books, theses, and other research materials. While ILL isn’t a guarantee, we will do what we can to fill your requests.

If you have any questions about the ILL service provided to students or your eligibility, please do not hesitate to contact the ILL office at 303-724-2111 or at copydocs@ucdenver.edu.

[Brittany Heer, Interlibrary Loan Manager]

Two new iMacs in the library’s Information Commons

iMac Computer WorkstationsThe library is pleased to announce placement of two new iMacs in the library’s 1st floor Information Commons computing area for use by UC Denver students, faculty and staff. The iMacs feature El Capitan OS X and Microsoft Office 2016.

If using the iMacs, remember to reboot when you are done. Be sure save your work to your own USB drive or email it to yourself as the computers do not retain any user information or data once the machines are rebooted.
