NLM Exhibition on AIDS on Display in Information Commons

Surviving and ThrivingThe Briscoe Library is hosting a traveling exhibition from the National Library of Medicine, called Surviving & Thriving: AIDS, Politics, and Culture. The exhibit explores the history of the disease, beginning with it’s appearance in the United States in the early 1980s. Individual panels describe the reactions to the disease, the struggle of scientists and public health officials to understand the disease and determine how AIDS spread, advocacy and activism on behalf of those who were stricken, how the United States government finally reacted to the epidemic, and the challenges still posed by AIDS today.

The exhibition will be on display in the 3rd floor Information Commons until December 6, 2015. In conjunction with this exhibition, and in honor of AIDS Awareness Week, the library will host a presentation by Gregory Anstead, M.D., Ph.D. entitled, Suffering and Progress: A History of the HIV Epidemic in the United States on December 3, 2015 at 12 Noon in the Howe Conference Room on the 5th floor of the Briscoe Library.

 

Off Campus Access Restored

Our recent issues with off campus access should be resolved now.  Please contact the on call librarian if you experience any problems.

 

Off Campus Login Update

The UT Health Science Center librarians are preparing an update for Off Campus Login, the service that provides users with access to electronic resources via the library’s home page. This update will ensure that the service can take advantage of future security updates and allow the library to provide continued support and access for off campus users.

The update is scheduled to go live the morning of Tuesday, June 2, 2015. Service downtime is not anticipated for off campus users. However, with all updates of this nature, there is a slight risk that some users may experience temporary intermittent connectivity issues to library electronic resources. As always, UTHSCSA VPN is available as an alternative option for accessing the library’s electronic resources from off campus.

If you experience extended periods of interruption on or after this update, please don’t hesitate to contact library staff at askalibrarian@uthscsa.edu and we will be happy to assist you.
