Positive study vibes to Geisel students

 

The library becomes a second home to medical students who are starting to wind down the Fall term and prepare for exams. We see students with their headphones in and papers, laptops, and highlighters scattered across tables and study carrels. Cereal boxes, food containers, and bananas and oranges can sometimes be found alongside them. And in the quiet afternoon, the occasional student can be found taking a ten minute power nap.

During these stressful times, the library tries to help support our medical students as much as possible. Aside from our helpful staff, books, and many resources, we also offer quiet study spaces, lamps for late night studying, computers and mobile device chargers, and study break materials like coloring pages, puzzles, and origami.

From everyone at the Biomedical Libraries, we wish you all the best! You’ve Got This!

Books are returning to Dana Biomedical Library

New Dana Book ShelvesDana has two new sets of shelves in the East Reading Room to accommodate nearly 900 books recently moved from the Library Depository.  Books were selected to be moved based on currency (priority given to those published 2010 and on) and recent circulation (regardless of publication date).    They include the following topics:  biology, ecology, and basic health and medicine.  This collection was the result of the Biomedical Libraries Monograph Project and the desire to create a browsing collection at Dana.

Painting Exhibit by Georgie Runkle at The Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library

Newfane Church Painting by Georgie Runckle The Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is proud to host an exhibit of oil paintings by Georgie Runkle.  Georgie lives on the Rock River in Marlboro, Vermont where she enjoys painting covered bridges, local barns, and sugar houses because they are iconic Vermont structures that she feels are slowly disappearing.  Her goal is to preserve them in the only way that she can…on canvas.  She also loves painting in the Chesapeake Bay area, Quebec, Canada and locales along the Atlantic coast.  A few of the places where Georgie has studied are the Barnes Foundation, the Delaware Art Museum, and the Edward L. Loper, Sr. Art School.  Georgie’s paintings will be on display through March 2018.

Artist Statement:
Oil Painting by Georgie RunkleMy paintings are deliberate.  They are a mosaic of complex color and shapes arranged on a canvas to create a visual expression of an inner landscape.  My art becomes what I see in nature.

I am a plein air painter.  As you drive through southern Vermont you may see me painting along the roadside, in a field, or beside a barn…anywhere that the setting has attracted my aesthetic sensibility.

–Georgie Runkle

Collamer Abbott: Photo Exhibit at Matthews-Fuller Library

Abbot photo of Hartford Vermont FarmThe Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is currently hosting an exhibit of Upper Valley Photographs from the 1950’s by Collamer Abbott, supported by a grant from the Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.  The Quechee Library and Northlight Digital  worked with photographer Collamer Abbott in 2004 to create an exhibit called “The Changing Nature of Art and Place.”  Many of his images from the 1950’s were scanned, enhanced and printed by Northlight Digital of White River Junction. The prints in this exhibit capture life in Hartford, Vermont in the 1950’s.

About Collamer Abbott
Collamer Abbott was born in 1919 in Wilder, Vermont, just a few miles away from the site of the Ely copper mines.  Abbott later became the historian for the Vermont Copper Company.

This involvement with copper mining has constituted only one of Abbott’s interests. He has also worked in journalism, serving as reporter, photographer, and deskman at newspapers in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. In addition, he is a former associate editor of Ski magazine.

Abbott has also had experience as an English Instructor, teaching for five years at Castleton State College. He has written many articles and book reviews for historical and regional magazines, as well as for major newspapers. These articles include “Isaac Tyson Jr.: Pioneer Industrialist,” in Business History Review, 1968; “New England Money goes South,” in Georgia Historical Quarterly, 1965; and “New England’s Mining Relics,” in The New England Galaxy, 1965.
