On June 20, 2019, hundreds of guests gathered to celebrate the opening of the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library's newly renovated spaces. The a cappella medical student group "The Ultrasounds" kicked off the event with two great arrangements ('Stand by Me' by Ben E. King and 'I Want it that Way' by The Backstreet Boys). Following the performance were speeches by John Gallagher, Director of the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library, Susan Gibbons, Yale University Librarian, and Richard Belitsky, YSM Deputy Dean for Education.
After the ribbon cutting, guests were welcomed into the spaces and invited to experience the classrooms, new technology, learn about library services, and view rare items from the historical library collection. Thanks to all who helped us celebrate this momentous occassion!
