HSL’s rare materials librarian, Emily Epstein, has worked on making the Color Our Collections for 2018 into a coloring book. She collected the coloring pages into a booklet, and Douglas set out the coloring books in the main lobby with coloring supplies, including crayons and colored pencils.
Please stop by and color some of the coloring books! This is a free stress relief activity during exams this May for our students.
You can also access the coloring book to download and print at home here.
The books are on the tables around the staircases in the main lobby.
Jason, who you might recognize from the circulation desk, volunteered to get things started and color one of the coloring books!
There were some technical issues for the last two weeks with the migration of the MyiLibrary titles to ProQuest Ebook Central.
After some technical work, the titles are re-directing correctly!
If you haven’t heard, MyiLibrary migrated to ProQuest Ebook Central on April 25, 2018. Now when you access a MyiLibrary title in the HSL catalog, you will be redirected to this institution webpage:
Please choose University of Colorado Health Sciences Library.
Here is a screen shot of the landing page:
The links from MyiLibrary will re-direct to ProQuest Ebook Central until the end of 2020. The HSL staff will work on cleaning up the links in Search HSL and the website in the meantime. Please be patient with any cleanup!
MyiLibrary migrated to ProQuest eBook Central! The platform migrated on Wednesday, April 25, 2018. The entire CU library system is migrating, and the move is being organized through the consortium with everyone working together.
The links in the library’s catalog Search HSL should automatically redirect you to the new platform (EBook Central) after the migration. If you encounter any issues accessing ebooks, please contact the library directly or click on the ‘Report a Problem’ link in the record for the ebook.
As part of the migration, any saved notes will be lost. If you have any saved notes in your MyiLibrary account, please export them from MyiLibrary. You can follow the instructions in the PDF, and here is a brief overview of the instructions:
- Log into MyiLibrary
- Select “My Account” a the top of the home page, then “Notes” from the drop-down menu (this will show you a list of books with notes)
- Select the titles from which you want to save notes
- Choose either to print your notes or email them to yourself
Stephen Jay Gould and Rosamond Wolff Purcell
….The essays and photographs collected here present art and science in conversation, rather than in opposition. As Gould writes in his preface, although the two disciplines may usually communicate in different dialects, when juxtaposed they strikingly reflect upon and enhance one another. Working together, Purcell’s photographs and Gould’s scientific musings speak to us about ourselves and our world in a hybrid language richer than either could command on its own….
Through its unique combination of works and photographs, Crossing Over prompts us to ponder not only the basis of the false dichotomy between art and science, but also the distinction of mind and nature, and of all humanly imposed categories of order. Gould and Purcell’s work convinces the reader that a provocative interplay between art and science is not only possible, but inevitable and necessary as well.

Eminent Women of the Age: Being Narratives of the Lives and Deeds of the Most Prominent Women of the Present Generation (Hartford, Conn.: S.M. Betts & Co., 1868) was compiled by popular biographer James Parton. In the preface, he explained that while many works dealt with the lives and deeds of men, “in respect to eminent women of our age, there is not in existence, so far as the publishers are aware, any work, or series of works, which supplies the information contained in this volume.” The biographical sketches in the volume were written by Parton and his wife Sara (a popular novelist who used the pen-name Fanny Fern), and sixteen others, including Horace Greeley and Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Grace Greenwod. Stanton Fern, and Greenwood were also among the biographees.
James Parton (1822-1891) was a popular American biographer best known for books on the lives of prominent men, including Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Horace Greeley, General Benjamin Butler, and Voltaire, biographical collections, such as Captains of Industry (1884) and Revolutionary Heroes (1890), and nonfiction works on a variety of topics ranging from taxation of churches to humorous poetry. He was born in Canterbury, England, but came to the United States with his family at the age of 5. After completing his education in New York City and White Plains, New York, he taught school, first in Philadelphia and later in New York City. In 1875, three years after his wife’s death, he moved to Newburyport, Massachusetts, where he lived until he died in 1891.
Most of the biographees are American, with some notable exceptions, such as Florence Nightingale, Queen Victoria, and Empress Eugenie, and a number of artists and actresses. A section devoted to women as physicians was written by Henry Bond Elliot, a Congregational minister. It begins with an historical overview of medical education for women, especially in the United States, followed by biographical sketches of five American physicians: Clemence S. Lozier (Syracuse Eclectic College, 1853), Elizabeth Blackwell (Geneva Medical College, 1849), Harriot Kezia Hunt (studied privately with Dr. Richard Dixon Mott and his wife), Hannah E. Myers Longshore (Female Medical College of Pennsylvania, 1850), and Ann Preston (Female Medical College of Pennsylvania, 1866). The only subject whose portrait is included is Dr. Lozier.
The Health Sciences Library’s copy of Eminent Women of the Age was recased in its original publisher’s green cloth with gilt-stamped spine and upper board by Frank B. Roger, M.D. It is illustrated with steel-engraved portraits.
Rare materials are available to individuals or groups by appointment on Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons, or at other times by arrangement. To schedule an appointment, contact Emily Epstein, email@example.com or 303-724-2119.
