Strauss Health Sciences Library’s Collection Development Technician, Paul Andrews is back with a brand new exhibit in the 2nd Floor rotunda!
Kildare ran for five seasons on NBC from 1961 to 1966. The show starred
Richard Chamberlin as Dr. James Kildare, a popular character created by writer
Frederick Faust, the subject of a series of MGM films and radio series in the
30s and 40s. Dr. Kildare took place at Blair General Hospital and told
the story of a young intern learning how to be a doctor.
Strauss Health Sciences Library has a Dr. Kildare game that was released by
IDEAL in 1962. The object of the game is to visit the rooms indicated on
the Diagnosis Cards and collect Doctor Cards, which mark the rooms you’ve
visited. Once you have visited the thirteen rooms needed to make a
diagnosis, you use the wheel to decode what is wrong with your patient.
The first one to collect and decipher their cards is the winner.
Visit the second floor rotunda, on the south side of the library to view the Dr. Kildare Game exhibit. If that sparks your need to play a board game, visit the Service Desk on the first floor, where you can check out Scrabble, Yahtzee, Chess, and Operation!

Debra, one of the staff members who works on exhibits, just finished updating the display case in the main entryway. The case features exhibits and events from the Fulginiti Pavilion.
The next exhibit at the Fulginiti is Showing (work x family). The exhibit features images of everyday life and explores the balance of work and family. For more information about the exhibit, you can read this essay about the exhibit.
The exhibit opened January 11th, and will be at the Fulginiti Pavilion from January 11 through April 12, 2019. You can see the exhibit for free during the regular hours at the Fulginiti, from 9 AM – 5 PM.
The School of Pharmacy exhibit in the main entryway.
You may have noticed in the main entryway the new School of Pharmacy exhibit. This exhibit features items from the new School of Pharmacy archives collection at HSL.
HSL has been working with the School of Pharmacy to digitize their archive. The School of Pharmacy has deposited physical items into the archive at HSL, and HSL has added digital-only items to the digital repository.
The exhibit in the main entryway has two examples of the Pharmacy Perspectives and School of Pharmacy News newsletters each, and printouts of other items in the collection. The yellowish printouts in the center are examples of the historical prescription sheets, with printouts of the commencement programs on the left in black and pink, and in between smaller versions of the class photos. On the right, there are printouts of the historical meeting minutes.
HSL is still working on digitizing the School of Pharmacy News newspapers and the class photos. Please check out the exhibit in the main entryway, and go to the repository to see the digitized materials. There will be more materials in the future!

Today was the last day of my internship in Tech Services which means this will be my last post. Since late September I have spent 120 hours learning everything I could about Tech services and how books are organized and cataloged at Anschutz Health Sciences Library two and a half hours at a time and I’ve shared some of what I’ve learned with you. Most of my time was spent going through boxes of books donated when the Denver Medical Library (DML) closed. Any book that was donated but we already had a copy of was not added to the collection, but any books not already part of Anschutz collection I cataloged and processed. Weather it was cataloged or weeded I removed a cataloging card from every book I worked with. This picture is every cataloging card I removed.
Some of the books I cataloged during my internship are now on display in the second floor rotunda. Three of the items on display in the rotunda are pamphlets that I digitized in addition to cataloging. The Health Science Library is part of Mountain Scholar which is the home site where a collection of Universities keep their digital archives. The whole of Anschutz digital collection can be accessed here. The three items I digitized are Colorado Some Pictures and a Few Facts which is the program for the 51st American Medical Association meeting which happened in Denver in 1898, and includes a picture of the CU Boulder campus in 1898. Division of Venereal Disease published by the Colorado State Board of Health in 1923 and contains the laws of the state on the treatment, quarantine, and required reporting practices of Colorado. And Standardization of Blood Pressure Readings which was published in 1939 by the American Heart Association and the Cardiac Association of Great Britain and Ireland. In addition to acting as a digital archives for special collections Mountain Scholar also has Thesis and Dissertations from past Anschutz students.

I have learned a lot during my time in Tech Services, and hopefully these blog posts have taught you a bit more about how the library functions and maybe even about the resources available to you through the library.
The exhibit is on the 1st floor of the Strauss Health Sciences Library and is on display November 19, 2018 to January 5, 2019.
Activists and reformers in the United States have long recognized the harm of domestic violence and sought to improve the lives of women who were battered. During the late 20th century, nurses took up the call. With passion and persistence, they worked to reform a medical profession that largely dismissed or completely failed to acknowledge violence against women as a serious health issue. Beginning in the late 1970s, nurses were in the vanguard as they pushed the larger medical community to identify victims, adequately respond to their needs, and work towards the prevention of domestic violence. This is their story.
