Please visit the Denison Family and Dr. Florence Sabin exhibits at their new home on the first floor of the Health Sciences Library.
Two exhibit cases that were previously in the Reading Room on the third floor have been moved to the first floor. These exhibit cases explore the histories of the Denison Family and Dr. Florence Sabin, perhaps one of the most famous doctors from Colorado.
Dr. Charles Denison was a prominent Denver physician who also taught, did ground breaking research in climate and tuberculosis, and invented a stethoscope that became a standard in the early 20th century. In 1924, his wife Ella Strong Denison, donated the funds to build a new medical library in his honor. The Charles Denison Memorial Library was the health sciences library on the 9th Avenue University of Colorado Health Sciences Center campus until it closed in 2007, when the Health Sciences Library moved to the Anschutz Medical Campus.
Dr. Florence Sabin’s connection to the University of Colorado was a long one. In 1937, she delivered the keynote address at the dedication of the Charles Denison, M/D. Memorial Library. On her 80th birthday, a wing of the original University of Colorado hospital was named in her honor. When the new University of Colorado Hospital was built in 1962, the building became the University of Colorado School of Medicine. The auditorium that bore Dr. Sabin’s name was used by students until the day the 9th Ave campus was closed. Many of the artifacts displayed here were housed in the auditorium, and when the campus moved, they became a permanent part of the Health Sciences Library’s collection.
A recent Retraction Watch article highlighted a unique way to score your article’s acceptance to a high yield journal – submit it under a famous author’s name, then claim it was an accident: http://retractionwatch.com/2016/11/28/new-way-fake-authorship-submit-prominent-name-say-mistake/#comments . While this case wasn’t caught by Retraction Watch, it’s an interesting spin on the kinds of research publication misconduct they investigate.

The library will suspend 24/7 access for a short period just before Christmas. When HSL closes at 5 p.m. on Thurs Dec 22, ALL USERS will be asked to exit the building — students, staff, AMC, downtown, everyone. NO EXCEPTIONS. This is for carpet cleaning of high traffic areas, many of which have rarely/never been cleaned. The suspension of 24/7 runs from 5 pm, Thursday Dec 22 to 7 am, Monday Dec 26. Thanks to everyone for your understanding as we make the library cleaner for everyone! Happy Holidays!

‘From its founding in 1871, local boosters advertised Colorado Springs as a premier health destination for the treatment of consumption and “lung troubles,” among other maladies. Our region’s greatest asset-turned-industry was its stunning scenery, abundant sunshine, and mild climate. For decades, the local Chamber of Commerce published pamphlets extolling the health benefits of the region. Distributed across the country and around the world, the advertisements encouraged invalids to breathe our “100% aseptic air” and enjoy the healing powers of our over 300 days of sunshine a year in Colorado Springs. And they came!’
This is the description for the exhibit, Chasing the Cure, that you can now visit at the Colorado Springs Pioneer Museum. The exhibit focuses on Colorado Springs’ role in fighting tuberculosis.
The Health Sciences Library is proud to have been able to lend several of the artifacts from our collection (many from the recent donation of Dr. Robert Shikes) to the Pioneer Museum for this exhibit. Some of the items we were able to loan include: a large Spitting on Floors and Walls Prohibited sign, a Don’t Spit on the Sidewalk paving brick, sputum cups and flasks, and several pieces of ephemera from the campaigns to stem and cure TB.
