The collection of College of Medicine yearbooks is now available for viewing and research on the UVM Scholarworks website. The yearbooks that were digitized were from the years 1952 to 1967. Also, College of Medicine catalogs ranging from 1860 to 1993 were included in the project and can be accessed at the website as well. Funded by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (New England Region), Dana Medical Library staff were able to start the project. Donna O’Malley, the Library Associate Professor and Systems Coordinator for the Dana Medical Library oversaw the process. The collections of yearbooks and catalogs are a great resource for exploring the history and evolution of the UVM College of Medicine.
Construction work has begun in the Dana Medical Library and will continue to the middle of September. We are excited to see the transition to the Larner classroom for Active Learning and a new Learning Commons for the wider health sciences community. Construction workers have been working diligently on renovation while patrons are able use the back of the library for research and study. Here is a photo to see the space that is available to patrons. We would love your comments and feedback and you can leave that information on our website by clicking on the “Your Feedback” button.
