Harry Potter and Medicine

St. Mungo's Magical Medical Library

St. Mungo’s Magical Medical Library

The LSUHSC-NO Libraries is pleased to host the National Libraries of Medicine’s traveling exhibit, Harry Potter’s World: Renaissance Science, Magic, and Medicine.  The exhibition will be at the Isché Library from September 1 – 18 and at the Dental Library from September 21 – October 6. Enjoy the HP-bibliography of items we have put on display.

“IN 1997, BRITISH AUTHOR J. K. ROWLING INTRODUCED THE WORLD TO HARRY POTTER AND A LITERARY PHENOMENON WAS BORN.  Millions of readers have followed Harry to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where he discovers his heritage, encounters new plants and animals, and perfects his magical abilities. Although a fantasy story, the magic in the Harry Potter books is partially based on Renaissance traditions that played an important role in the development of Western science, including alchemy, astrology, and natural philosophy. Incorporating the work of several 15th- and 16th-century thinkers, the seven-part series examines important ethical topics such as the desire for knowledge, the effects of prejudice, and the responsibility that comes with power. This exhibition, using materials from the National Library of Medicine, explores Harry Potter’s world and its roots in Renaissance magic, science, and medicine.”1

These exhibitions and educational resources engage diverse audiences and explore a variety of topics in the history of medicine.

Remembering Katrina: Faculty Publications for September

Now that we have survived the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, we are want to spotlight Faculty Publications about the more long-term effects of the storm and its impact on our schools, hospitals, and community.  While the August display focused primarily on the immediate and short term effects, we now would like to turn the spotlight on the lessons we have learned in the wake of the catastrophe.   After reviewing the scores of articles published by our faculty and researchers, we have selected 24 articles, representing all of our schools, that we feel will give the best overview of the resurgence of our research community and the community we serve.

These articles, as well as all of the articles in our Faculty Publications database, are authored by at least one member of our research community here at LSUHSC-New Orleans. They can be viewed in the Reference area, on the wall between the main entrance and the Library elevator, on the third floor of the Resource Center Building.

Remembering Katrina: Faculty Publications for August

As we approach the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, we are dedicating our Faculty Publications display for the next two months to articles about the storm and its impact on our schools, hospitals, and community. August’s display will focus on the immediate and short term effects: the damage to the campuses, and the efforts of our community to not only survive the damage left in the wake of catastrophic flooding but to learn from it. After reviewing the scores of articles published by our faculty and researchers, we have selected 24 articles, representing all of our schools, that we feel will give the best overview of the impact of the storm on our research community and on the community we serve.

These articles, as well as all of the articles in our Faculty Publications database, are authored by at least one member of our research community here at LSUHSC-New Orleans.  They can be viewed in the Reference area, on the wall between the main entrance and the Library elevator, on the third floor of the Resource Center Building.

He received his Master of Library and Information Sciences from Louisiana State University and his Bachelor of Arts, History, and Anthropology from the University of Mississippi in Oxford.
