Our staff member Debra has put together a new exhibit on the third floor, a collection of Denison artifacts.
Included in the exhibit are many artifacts from the Denison collection, including a leather wallet, Colorado medal, Henry Denison’s first pair of leather shows, a doilie embroidered by Henry Denison, birthday candles and tie pins, as well as other items.
Debra worked to display the physician’s account books and the cowboy hat that will be preserved in its own special-ordered case.
You can learn more about the Denison family and look through the online archive in the digital repository.
Here is the exhibit information sheet that Debra wrote for the exhibit:
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!
HSL has partnered with the Fulginiti Pavilion for Bioethics and Humanities to add the Fulginiti’s exhibit brochures and catalogs to the archives at HSL.
The Fulginiti generously donated copies of each of the catalogs that they have produced for their past exhibits, and these were added to the archive that is on the third floor of HSL. If you would like to view any of the archives, special collections, or artifacts, please make an appointment with the HSL staff.
The digital version of these materials was also added to the digital repository. Anyone can access the PDF versions of any of the brochures or pamphlets through the Digital Collections of Colorado.
HSL also worked to add a record for the collection as a whole to the library catalog, and also made the collection findable in WorldCat.
The past exhibit materials also exist in digital form on the Fulginiti’s website, and also the schedule of all upcoming events, including the current exhibit and the Arts in Medicine lecture series.
HSL will continue to advertise the Fulginiti’s events on social media, so check back on the social media channels for any reminders about upcoming events. The Fulginiti Pavilion’s Manager of Operations & Educational Technology, David Weil, graciously agreed to continue the relationship and add future exhibit materials to the archive.

You will still have options for requesting materials during the Prospector downtime.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL): Please create an ILL (Illiad) account to place requests for books and articles held at other libraries. ILL services will be limited to academic material. ILLiad is a free service for most Anschutz Medical Campus faculty, staff, and students. Please visit our webpage.

The Health Sciences Library was honored to receive a micro-grant from SIPA (State Internet Portal Authority) on March 29th, 2016. Digital Resources Librarian, Heidi Zuniga, who applied for the grant, will use the money to purchase an overhead book scanner which is important for scanning fragile books and other items without damaging them. One of the first projects planned for the scanner will be the digitization of some of the works of Dr. Charles Denison on tuberculosis and high altitude medicine. The collection will be made available online in the library’s institutional repository, Digital Collections of Colorado. Check back on our blog for project news.
