This week the library welcomes incoming students of the YSM class of 2018. We felt it was a good time to highlight a couple of pages with useful information for new students:
- Booking group study or meeting rooms
- Off-campus access to online library resources like articles and databases
- Student computing help
Welcome, and stay tuned for more helpful tips.
Many of you have already met Finn, the Medical Library's therapy dog, & his mom Krista Knudson.
Finn's normal hours will resume on Sept. 5th 1-3PM every Friday. His scheduled vacation days are September 12th and November 7.
The Cushing/Whitney Medical Library welcomes Rolando Garcia Milian as the Library's Biomedical Sciences Research Support Librarian. In this role, Rolando will serve as the primary liaison between the Medical Library and research departments, laboratories, and individual scientists across the Medical Center.
Happy 145th Birthday Harvey Cushing!
Harvey Cushing, born on April 8th in Cleveland in 1869, was the last of ten children of Henry Kirke and Betsey Maria Cushing and descended from a long line of Cushing doctors.
A brief list of his accomplishments include:
Since its opening in June 2010, the Cushing Center has become a destination of interest to many visitors including students from area schools, members of the Yale University and the New Haven community, medical students, physicians, and writers worldwide. As of page 126 of the guest book, visitors have come from at least 33 US states and 46 countries including places as far away as Tasmania and Madagascar.
Last year we provided guided tours to over 2,300 visitors, while many others ventured into the center on their own. Here are a few of the comments left behind by visitors.
