Library Bulletin Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center Library -- New Orleans
On December 16, 2008 another milestone was reached in the completion of the Library Commons. “The Conquest of Yellow Fever” frieze by Enrique Alferez was mounted in a specially prepared wall. (Specially prepared because the frieze is very large and very heavy.)
The frieze originally hung on the 2nd floor of the original School of Medicine building and was completed sometime before 1933. The frieze was removed from the wall at 1542 Tulane Avenue in 1987 when a proposed drop ceiling would have covered it; the sculpture’s champion was former LSUHSC Libraries Director Judith Caruthers. It will be available for general viewing upon the completion of the Library Commons.
The Libraries' National Medical Librarians Month promotion(link removed) (October 2008) received an Honorable Mention Creative Promotions Award from the Medical Library Association.
Auxiliary Enterprises(link removed) has provided a color copier for use within the Isché Library. Copies on this machine cost 25¢ each.
The Isché Library now opens at 12 noon on Sundays and closes at 12 midnight.
A new book return was placed between the ATM machine & the University Police station on the skywalk near the parking garage in February. Please feel free to return any library materials (for either Isché or Dental) at this location.
