Information Access and Availability in the Developing World: Why Should We Care?

Kim-Parker2How Does Research4Life Make A Difference?

Kimberly Parker
Hanari Program Manager,
World Health Organization

Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2016, 3:00 – 4:00PM
DHMC Auditorium E
Reception 4:00 – 4:30PM

Join your colleagues with an interest in the inequities of access to the medical, biological, and environmental literature for an inspiring talk by Kimberly Parker of the World Health Organization.  In her role as the Hinari Programme Manager at the World Health Organization, Kimberly has nurtured a complex international partnership that now delivers the research literature to people in over 100 countries. These programs provide free access to the subscription-based research literature alongside openly available publications. They also ensure the necessary education on the use and reuse of that literature to those in less developed countries.

Kimberly was awarded the T. Mark Hodges International Service Award by the Medical Library Association in 2015 for her contributions to expanding access to health information, and in the same year the Hinari program won the Louise Darling Medal for Collection Development in the Health Sciences.

Following the talk, there will time for discussion.
Refreshments will be available.

Pendulum Autographs: Drawing with Harmonic Motion – Art Exhibit at Matthews-Fuller Library

Don Fitzpatrick – Artist Statement

Harmonogram 1This exhibit features drawings created on a harmonograph drawing machine. A harmonograph is an interactive kinetic mechanism that employs pendulums to make geometric images. The images on display were created using a wide variety of inks and paper. The drawings are expressions of the frequencies at which the pendulums move. The frequencies can be altered by raising or lowering the weights on the pendulums, and they can be equated to sound frequencies – hence the name ‘harmonograph’. The first machine was created in the 1840’s as a scientific instrument and became popular as parlor entertainment as the century progressed.¹

Harmonogram 2The drawings in this exhibit were produced using two different machines – a three pendulum rotary harmonograph, and a two pendulum lateral harmonograph. I designed and constructed the three pendulum version a few years ago and quickly become engrossed by the science behind the motion and images it creates. The only issue is the significant amount of space the machine requires to operate.  So I decided to build the two pendulum lateral version a few months ago and have found that it is capable of producing images that are not possible with the larger three pendulum machine.

Video of the harmonograph in action:

This exhibit will be on display through October 2016.

New Nature Drawings at Dana Library

Aliette K. Frank

Aliette K. Frank

Dana Biomedical Library recently added six colored pencil and graphite nature drawings by Aliette K. Frank to the East Reading Room.

Aliette Frank is a class of 2000 graduate in the Dartmouth College Biology Program. As an Environmental & Evolutionary Biology major, she first started drawing plant and animal species in the field on a research expedition to Africa to study mountain gorillas and chimpanzees in 1997. Since then she has enjoyed drawing many different subjects in her artistic and scientific work. Many of her interests spark from the colorful and uniquely shaped biota she discovered on Dartmouth’s Biology Foreign Study Program in Costa Rica and Jamaica in Winter 2000. Aliette’s PhD is in Sustainability & Education from The University of British Columbia (2009). Aliette is starting to write/illustrate children’s books about sustainability.
