The Syrian American Medical Society is launching a medical book drive this coming month collecting 2-edition-old or newer medical reference books (Anatomy, Dermatology, Cardiology, etc) as well as any anatomy sets one has laying around. The resources will be used to educate health-care staff in Jordan, Turkey, Greece, Lebanon, and Syria, particularly for refugee camp work. If you wish to donate materials, there is a collection box in the Office of Student Affairs on the fourth floor of the Sackler building. Please direct any questions to Julian Willett at: email@example.com
The Hirsh Health Sciences Library has been and will continue to donate books to this cause. It is our sincerest hope that together we may collect as many materials as possible in aid of the ongoing crisis.

For this Halloween edition of Throwback Thursday, we look at one of the rarest volumes in Hirsh’s Special Collections room. Dating back to 1649, The Works of that Famous Chirurgion Ambrose Parey is a landmark in the history of medicine and surgery. This book is profusely illustrated with quaint anatomical woodcuts, portraits, and various examples from natural history. It also includes a chapter entitled Of Monsters and Prodigies, hearsay which for many in the 17th Century, stirred their superstitions and fear of the unknown. Happy Halloween!
Happy fall everyone! As is always the case, we’ve been working hard over the summer to improve our ever growing collection, and to bring you the latest titles in Health Sciences. We’ve also added quite a number of Leisure Reading books to the newly expanded bay on the 4th floor of Sackler. Here are a few of the most recent titles to come in:

Safely stored in the Special Collections Room of the Hirsh Health Sciences Library, is this haunting Civil War surgical kit. Gift of Dr. Murry L. Shipp, M’39, it was made between the years of 1858-1865 right here in Boston by Codman & Shurtleff Surgical Instruments on Tremont Street. This kit contains all its original tools and is remarkably preserved. Should you wish to see it in person and hold a piece of history in your hands, just ask a librarian or an assistant for directions. We’ll provide the white gloves off-course.
Hirsh has a collection of rare, centuries-old books and artifacts that have accumulated over the years—they are housed on the 6th floor of the Sackler building and are available to you for library use only.
This summer we undertook a most enjoyable clean-up project (for the book-lover/ history-nut) of the Special Collections room: re-classifying and cataloging hundreds of dusty, old books from their Library of Congress call numbers to National Library of Medicine, and creating new archival ID strips while conducting preservation tasks as needed.
Many thanks are due to Stack Assistants Rebecca Philio and Tiffany Wong for their help and support. The project has now reached completion and was a great success!
