Beware of Bison Selfies

From the latest issue of the USMMWR, “Notes from the Field: Injuries Associated with Bison Encounters — Yellowstone National Park, 2015″ which lets us know that there were 5 pedestrian visitor injuries in 2015 mostly because visitors did not stay the required 75 feet away from a large wild animal. The injured visitors were all gored or “tossed into the air” and all survived.

3D Printing at Dental Library on Wednesdays and Fridays Only

The Dental Library has now designated two weekdays for 3D printing jobs: Wednesday and Friday.

We understand that the noise generated by the 3D printer can be distracting. At the same time, we want this technology to be openly available and conveniently usable for all students and faculty. As a compromise, we will restrict 3D printing to Wednesdays and Fridays so everyone will be guaranteed quality time in the library.

It should be noted that we may not always have 3D print projects going on the designated days; likewise, we may have to start a priority project on an off day. So please bear with us as we try to provide an accessible educational space for everyone to study, learn, and discover.

Come try out our 3D printer on Wednesdays and Fridays!
