Oregon Health Sciences Libraries Association meeting July 18-19

The Oregon Health Sciences Libraries Association Annual Meeting and Continuing Education will take place July 18-19 in Silverton. I'm excited to be co-teaching the continuing education session on health care reform on the 19th. From 8:30-9:45 I'll lead a session on the history of health reform in Oregon in the morning. In the afternoon, Liz Baxter, Executive Director of We Can Do Better will take over for her session on current state and federal health reform. Hope to see you there!

New images in the Digital Resources Library

Our latest additions to the DRL include two photographs of Herbert C. Miller, D.D.S., M.D., F.A.C.D., the founder of North Pacific Dental College, predecessor of the OHSU School of Dentistry.

Images of the striking (and sadly gone) North Pacific Dental College building at NW 15th and Couch are a very common request from researchers. Earlier this year we digitized this print, which was annotated long ago by an unknown hand. The notes identify facilities and locations, and warn, "I am not in this picture so don't look for me."
