    Description

    The HSLS Rare Book and Special Collections contain more than 8,000 publications and artifacts. A true gem in Falk Library, this unique collection is typically only accessible by appointment—until now.

    Join us for a behind-the-scenes look into the collection with a new, virtual series, via the HSLS YouTube channel:

    Episode 3: Musings on Manuscripts to premiere on May 28, 2021, at 12 PM EDT

    Gosia Fort, PhD, shares a glimpse of the unpublished items in HSLS rare books and special collections. All presented materials are hand made, unique, and have some local interest. They are like vignettes of School of Medicine past, its people, and its collections.

     

    Episode 2: What is Rare There? The question “What is Rare There?” is often asked. People are curious what the library has and what a rare book is. Our expert explains the criteria of inclusion of books in the rare book collection. During the discussion, our expert shares some of the most notable rarities from the collection.

    Premiered: March 31, 2021

    Run time: 27:14

     

    Episode 1: Enhancing Medical Teaching with Illustrations presents several books from our collections with unusual illustrations. Evoking the topic of teaching enhancements is just an excuse to show how quickly new innovative techniques and technological inventions were adapted in medical books. The chosen examples could be compared to early adopters of new technologies today.

    Premiered: February 18, 2021
