Image of Research Photography Competition

 

Briscoe Library has launched a new photography competition called Image of Research. This competition is an opportunity for UT Health San Antonio students, residents, and fellows from all five schools to capture, share, and present the essence of their research in a single visual image. The competition and its accompanying exhibition showcase students’ creative visual conceptualization of their research.

The Image of Research competition is put on by libraries in colleges and universities all over the world, including Kansas University, University of Illinois at Chicago, University of Alberta, and University of Leicester.

Briscoe Library’s Image of Research competition is currently accepting submissions now through September 21, 2018. As submissions are received, they will be printed and displayed throughout the library. There will be cash prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place as well as an Interprofessional Education award. Awards will be presented during a ceremony and reception in the Fall.

Library has Access to State Medical Society Journals

 

The UT Health Libraries now have access to an archive of State Medical Society Journals through an open access initiative led by the Medical Heritage Library. The State Medical Journals Collection encompasses nearly 50 state medical journals and includes 117 titles dating back from 1900-2000. Journals found in the collection have been provided free of charge by individual journal publishers agreeing to open access to journal content currently under copyright.

State medical society journals document the transformation of American medicine in the twentieth century at both the local and national level.

Access the State Medical Journal Collection here.

Library Space Planning: UT Health Library Staff Visit UT Austin Libraries

 

UT Health Library Senior Director Owen Ellard and staff librarians traveled to the UT Austin campus in December to tour recently renovated library space as shown above. Hosted by UT Austin Library staff, the tours allowed time for discussion of renovation and space planning to meet the changing needs of students and faculty.  Areas toured included the UT Austin Fine Arts Library and its new maker space called “The Foundry” as well as newly renovated areas of the Perry-Castaneda main library. The transformation of library space was made visible through the range of technology, furniture, and artwork used throughout the UT Austin Library spaces.  In light of recent print shelf removal at the UT Health Briscoe Library as shown below, librarians and staff will be working with students and faculty to adapt the newly open spaces to meet the needs of UT Health campus communities.
