If the Library isn't "there" anymore, is it anywhere else? We are still there to serve the information needs of the NYULMC community — any time, any place.
After being knocked out of our facility in the Medical Sciences Building by Hurricane Sandy, the Library continues to operate in an altered but very functional state. Most of our faculty and staff are now occupying offices at 577 First Avenue (at 33rd St).
Although most of our facilities are temporarily closed, our collections and services are up and running: e-journals and e-books are available; anything not available electronically can be obtained on request; and librarians are answering questions and meeting with you and your colleagues.
Staff will be checking ID cards at the ground floor entrance to Ehrman Medical Library from Monday, March 12, through Sunday, March 18. Please be prepared to show a valid NYU ID or affiliated ID card each time you enter the library. This is a part of NYUHSL's user-type survey that allows us to better understand our user population.
Ehrman Medical Library is holding a special sale of old and rare medical books today, Friday, April 1 through next week. (Remember, the library is closed on Saturday!). The books are located just inside the ground floor entrance to the library.
These books date from 1915 to the 1950s. Most titles are by American authors but there are some European works as well. Most medical specialties are covered, including some recent works in psychiatry, along with biographies and histories. The books are generally in good condition.
The NYU Health Sciences Libraries are pleased to announce an exhibit entitled "The Literature of Prescription: Charlotte Perkins Gilman and 'The Yellow Wall-Paper'," now on display at Bellevue Medical Library. This traveling exhibition, on loan from the National Library of Medicine, examines a nineteenth-century writer's challenge to the medical profession and the relationship between science and society.
Please join us in congratulating our own Jose Dessources for his beautiful photo, "ReCreation," which won the "People's Choice" award at the Employee Recognition Program's photography exhibition back in December. We thank Jose for his contributions -- both artistic and otherwise -- to the NYU Health Sciences Libraries.
NYUHSL is pleased to announce that the work of one of its own staff members, Jose Dessources, has been featured in the NYULMC Employee Recognition Program's "Cultural Diversity" photography exhibition.
