Over the course of 2016, the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library will be celebrating 75 years since its founding. The Medical Library’s anniversary kick-off event on Friday was a great success. Harvey Cushing himself made a special appearance. He was available for photographs with everyone, including these 3 students.
The Medical Historical Library is looking for videos/DVDs for the Medical School’s Second Year Shows. We tend to get requests for the shows on at least yearly, when the current Second Year Show is in production. While we have some of the shows, we don’t own the last few years (2011-2015) and very little before 2005. If you own a Second Year show, please considering donating (or allowing us to make copies) of the show for our Archives.

Librarians at Yale have developed numerous online guides for Yale users. Here at Yale, our guides can provide a number of things, including:
- Research guidance for a particular Yale course;
- Instructions on how to research a subject;
- Documentation for a research tool or service; or
- Instructions on accessing and using collections or resources.
You might find different guides of particular interest based on your role and field, for example:

If you need to create a survey as part of your research, you now have access to Qualtrics, an online survey tool which is HIPPA-compliant. Qualtrics allows you to create surveys with a myriad of different question types and report options. You can also collaborate on surveys with colleagues at Yale and share results and data. Qualtrics is easy to use, but Yale medical librarians can also provide you with support.
