They’re everywhere: on Facebook, Twitter, social media… but how do you cite the opinions or infographics found in a meme? The Modern Language Association has this covered: https://style.mla.org/how-do-i-cite-a-meme/
Gold was discovered in Colorado in 1859, and a huge influx of prospectors flooded the territory to strike it rich. Soon Denver, where some of the first traces of gold were found at the confluence of Cherry Creek and the Platte River, became the center of the much of the growth of what would become the state of Colorado. The new settlers required the services of many professions to help them in their new lives, including doctors and pharmacists. Soon, the local drugstore was an integral part of the community.
The local drugstore provided the medications locally compounded and placed in unique glass bottles that also served as advertisements. The local drugstore served the people Colorado up until large chain drugstores began to buy local stores in the early 20th Century.
Visit the South 2nd floor landing to explore some of the Health Sciences Library’s collection of Colorado Drugstore Bottles.

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.
For the second installment of our Fun, Weird Words, I thought I’d share…
Hum Durgeon — an imaginary illness, from the 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue
Frobly-mobly — feeling neither well nor unwell, from the 18th Century. The modern version, I think, would be “meh”
And my personal favorite (if only I could remember it so early in the morning) is:
Dysania — extreme difficulty getting out of bed (especially in the morning), from the early 1900’s
