The annual Yale School of Medicine Reunion Weekend is approaching. As part of Reunion Weekend, the Library invites YSM alumni and friends to a number of events:
Friday, May 29
"The Modern Medical Library: “It’s all on the Internet! Isn’t it?” 3-4pm
Innovation and technology are transforming many industries, and libraries have not been immune to radical change. In this context some wonder about the relevance of libraries today. Join a panel of Cushing/Whitney Medical Librarians as they talk about how their roles have changed to meet the needs of the medical community. Hear about their diverse roles as research partners, and the fascinating ways they support the work of the Medical Center’s students, clinicians, scientists and educators.
Saturday, May 30
Light Continental Breakfast, 8-9am
"Treasures of the Medical Library," 2-3pm and 3-4pm
Children ages 5-12 are invited to follow a self-guided, parent-assisted hunt for some of the Library’s extraordinary and amazing treasures. Maps and hunt instructions will be available at the Circulation Desk.
Can You Help the Library Identify Mystery Photographs?
Over the years, the Medical Historical Library has accumulated a collection of photographs representing many great people, places and events. However, we need your help to identify who, where, and what are in some of our photographs! We hope you can help the Library as we work to preserve Yale’s history. Be on the lookout for our packet of photographs in the entrance to the Library.
Add your thesis to the Yale Medicine Thesis Digital Library!
The Cushing/Whitney Library is digitizing many of our former student theses to add to the digital archives at http://ymtdl.med.yale.edu. If you would like your thesis added to the repository with worldwide access, please download the permission form (http://tinyurl.com/pm9b2f2) or contact Nathan Rupp (firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-737-2960) with questions. Theses will be added in batches, over the course of the year.
