Library Website Redesign

The library site will soon have a new look.  In compliance with the updated campus web design, the new library site has a cleaner appearance and more streamlined navigation.  Some items to note:

  • The site is responsive and optimized for mobile browsers.  This means that the lists of convenient links on the old site had to be eliminated since they are not easily readable on smaller screens.
  • All of the content from the old site is still available.  Check out our clickable pathfinder to see where old links map to new.
  • The design for the new site is consistent with all UNMC sites across campus and has gone through extensive review by Public Relations.

Thanks for your patience as we make this transition. We hope that the new site will soon become an old friend to you in all of your scholarly activities.

Harry Potter’s World exhibit

In 1997, British author J. K. Rowling introduced the world to Harry Potter and a literary phenomenon was born. Millions of readers have followed Harry to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where he discovers his heritage, encounters new plants and animals, and perfects his magical abilities. Although a fantasy story, the magic in the Harry Potter books is partially based on Renaissance traditions that played an important role in the development of Western science, including alchemy, astrology, and natural philosophy. Incorporating the work of several 15th- and 16th-century thinkers, the seven-part series examines important ethical topics such as the desire for knowledge, the effects of prejudice, and the responsibility that comes with power.

This exhibition, using materials from the National Library of Medicine, explores Harry Potter’s world, its roots in Renaissance science, and the ethical questions that affected not only the wizards of Harry Potter, but also the historical thinkers featured in the series.

Visit Harry Potter’s World in the McGoogan Library of Medicine, August 4 – September 13.

This exhibition is brought to you by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, and was curated by Elizabeth J. Bland.
