  • Historic Texts in Occupational Health


    An exhibit on the 5th floor of the Library features key historic texts in the history of occupational health, ranging from the 15th to the 20th century.

    On display are several editions of Bernardino Ramazzini's De Morbis Artificum (considered the founding work of occupational medicine), including the first edition and the first English edition, Diseases of Tradesmen. Earlier works, such as a rare edition of Stockhausen's Libellus De Lithargyrii Fumo Noxio Morbificio, describe diseases of miners.

    The exhibit includes works by Charles Thackrah, Florence Nightingale, Horace Vernon, Alice Hamilton, and other significant contributors to the field.

    The exhibit will be on view through August 26, in the display cases outside the Technology Commons.

  • Ingenuity Pathways Analysis: Funding Partners Needed


    The Library is looking for partners for the renewal of the Ingenuity Pathways Analysis (IPA) subscription. IPA is a software program that helps researchers model, analyze, and understand the complex biological and chemical systems at the core of life science research.

    The Library has supported a subscription for UCSF for two years, with help last year from two partners. Due to its popularity and adoption by researchers in various disciplines across UCSF, the Library needs additional funding partners in order to increase the number of users who can access IPA simultaneously. Without co-funders, UCSF may lose access to this valuable tool.

    Please contact Anneliese Taylor for more information about supporting this program. Get more information about IPA.
