Abstract:
Objective: Unlike many health sciences libraries, our library has a large and far-reaching Historical Collection and Archives (HCA) room housing hidden treasures. Showcasing this collection, and the history of the health sciences, has often been a challenge. This paper examines the development and implementation of a History of the Health Sciences Lecture Series. Method: The recent addition of historical donations from alumni and other health professionals has resulted in an increase interest in the library’s historical collections and archives. Making these collections discoverable is the primary goal. The library hosted a mosaic of lectures that focused on the library’s historical collections. Lectures have been tied to current library events and university courses. Creating this historical lecture series is a collaborative planning process which included many obstacles and creative solutions. Steps in this process include: (1) connecting historical collections with faculty or alumni to design the lecture; (2) developing marketing strategies across the health science campus that encourage attendance and interest; and (3) assessing the effectiveness of the lecture series.
