Scavenger Hunt!

The OHSU 125th Anniversary Scavenger Hunt is on!

The event runs Nov. 2 through 19 and is open to OHSU students and employees. If you fit that description, you can log in to O2 and get the clues and the rules from the Staff News blog.

I was delighted to join the team that's managing the Scavenger Hunt - it was a lot of fun to think of ways to highlight OHSU history in way that would be fun and engaging for our whole community. My favorite clue:

121. Go team! Recreate this beloved photo of OHSU’s 1894 School of Medicine football team 

Looking forward to helping judge the entries later this month!

History of Dentistry Room relocating

One of OHSU Library's treasures is the History of Dentistry Collection, consisting of over 600 rare 19th-20th century books on dental practice and education. In 1978-1979, a History of Dentistry Room was established at the Dental Library to house this collection. In 2003, the collection was moved to OHSU’s Main Library: a meeting room in the library’s Administration department became the next History of Dentistry Room. I am pleased to announce that in 2012-2013, the History of Dentistry Room will be relocating to a new, dedicated space on the 4th floor of the library. The new room will offer improved security and environmental control, better visibility and access for library patrons, and additional space for the growing collection.

The book collection will remain accessible for research throughout the transition. For security purposes, it will be temporarily located in closed stacks space in the library until the new room has been prepared.

We hope to complete the transition in early 2013, and we’re looking forward to showing off the new room when it’s complete!
