Graphic Medicine: Ill-Conceived and Well-Drawn

What happens when health-related issues and cartoons merge? A National Library of Medicine exhibit called, “Graphic Medicine: Ill-Conceived and Well-Drawn!”.  The exhibit opens this week at the Dental Campus for the following dates of June 13th-29th. Learn about the latest medical oriented graphic novels and their contribution to societal learning. So, check out the National Library of Medicine exhibition; “Graphic Medicine: Ill-Conceived and Well-Drawn!”.

The Exhibition Program at the National Library of Medicine strives to promote greater understanding and awareness of how the past informs the present and can shape the future by creating lively and informative exhibitions and educational resources that enhance awareness of and appreciation for the collections of the National Library of Medicine. These exhibitions and educational resources engage diverse audiences and explore a variety of topics in the history of medicine.

STAT!Ref Dental ebook Collection Cancelled

We are cancelling the STAT!Ref dental ebook collection due to the very high cost and lack of funds.  This collection will no longer be available in STAT!Ref as of July 1st.  We are currently working on replacing the content in other online formats and/or in print, so some titles from the cancelled collection will eventually be available again.  Please contact the Dental Library for a list of those titles, or for information on other related resources.

Thanks for your patience and understanding!
