The Colorado drugstore bottles were donated by Dr. Robert H. Shikes. M.D.
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.
Since the recent change to the Health Sciences Library proxy server, we’ve received numerous connectivity error reports from users of the citation management software Papers. While we are more than happy to assist with issues related to the proxy link, please keep in mind that the library does not provide in-depth support or troubleshooting for Papers. If you would like to use a citation management program that the library does support and troubleshoot for, we recommend switching to EndNote. You can find more information about EndNote here: http://hslibraryguides.ucdenver.edu/endnote/cuanschutz

After recently coming across the 13th century term “forswunk” on the “British Medieval History” Facebook page, and sharing its delightful meaning with coworkers (“exhausted from too much work. To be ‘foreswunk’ is to be exhausted before you even begin”), we decided to share this and other fun, weird, and wonky work- or medically-relevant words with our wider readership. Here are a couple to go along with ‘foreswunk’:
Fudgel (18th C): the act of giving the impression of working, but actually doing nothing.
Perendinate (19th C): to put off, specifically until the day-after-tomorrow.

“Ever wanted an insight into counselling? Or wished you could be a ‘fly-on-the-wall’ in a psychotherapy session? Couch Fiction allows you to peep through the keyhole of the therapy room door and, more than that, read the minds of the protagonists…
Based on a case study of Pat (our sandal-wearing, cat-loving psychotherapist) and her new client, James (an ambitious barrister with a potentially harmful habit he can’t stop), this graphic novel follows the anxieties, frustrations, mind-wanderings and break-throughs of each, through a year of therapy sessions together. Beautifully illustrated and accompanied by succinct and illuminating footnotes, this book offers a witty and thought-provoking exploration of the therapeutic journey, considering a range of skills, insights and techniques along the way.”

“Louis Pasteur, Artist”
Joe Gal, PhD
Professor Emeritus, Department of Pathology
University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
Louis Pasteur is admired around the world as a benefactor of humanity for his discoveries and inventions in microbiology and infectious diseases. Much less well known is that he was a talented artist who as a teenager created first-rate images, mostly portraits of family, friends, and town notables, in pastel, charcoal, pencil, and lithography. He abandoned work as an artist at age 20 but maintained close connections to the world of art and artists for the rest of his life.
