New archival collections now in catalog

On an afternoon that has turned rather impressively stormy, I'm enjoying the cozy space of the History of Medicine Room and allowing the rain to focus my concentration on cataloging archival finding aids. Yes, that supremely librarianly endeavor of creating yet more data about data--all to the good when the data can reach different users in different venues.

For your perusing pleasure, you can now find the following archival collections represented in the OHSU Library catalog and in WorldCat:

The dietetics duo:
Oregon Dietetic Internship Program Collection, Accession No. 2006-007
Dorothy W. Hagan Image Collection, Accession No. 2006-013

...segue into the infant nutrition notes in the
Elizabeth Curtis French Papers, Accession No. 2006-004

...which is a tiny collection of a snippet of personal papers, much like the
Matthew Caldwell Class Notes, Accession No. 2005-006

...and I bet Matthew really wished he could have gone to the University of Oregon Medical School, where the faculty regarded fishing and horseshoes as major arts, as can be seen in the
Harry J. Sears Glass Lantern Slide Collection, Accession No. 2006-011

...which is a completely glass plate image collection, just like
Otis B. Wight Base Hospital 46 Glass Plate Negative Collection, Accession No. 2006-012

That last one is a mouthful!
