Data Valentines -- 2/15/2017
On Tuesday you'll celebrated your loved ones; on Wednesday, you can celebrate your loved ones and zeroes! Create a Valentine to the dataset of your choice.

Cushing Center Tour: The Cushing Tumor Registry as a Live Dataset -- 2/17/2017
You may have seen the Cushing Center, with brains, photographs and more -- but have you heard the story of how the collection came to be, how some samples, photographs, and other metadata survived until the twenty-first century, and how researchers are still using these samples today? Join Cushing Center Coordinator Terry Dagradi and Research and Education Librarian Kate Nyhan to discuss the continuing life of this extraordinary collection -- and how lucky we are that the collection has survived intact for so long. Click here for more details and registration (encouraged but not required).
