Happy holidays from HC&A

Happy holidays from all of us in OHSU Historical Collections & Archives! Christmas Day and New Year's Day happen to fall on Thursdays this year, meaning we will not hold our usual walk-in hours. OHSU Library, and thus our department, will also be closed on December 26th and January 2nd. We will be back to business as usual the following week.

2014 was a big year for HC&A, as we said goodbye to archivist Karen Peterson, welcomed Max Johnson as our new archivist, moved our support staff into a capacious work space in the Main Library, and launched the search for a new Public Services Coordinator. We took in important archival collections from the School of Nursing and School of Dentistry; and also acquired classic rare book titles in anatomy, neurology, and nursing. To accommodate these outstanding new collections, we also made much-needed expansions to our stacks space. Our staff met significant milestones in digitization, collections processing, and exhibitions. I can't wait to see what 2015 brings!
