The McGoogan Library will be hosting a Pet Therapy event on Tuesday April 26th, 2016. This event will take place outside of the Sorrell Center at the Sorrell Commons Area from 11:30am-1:00pm. Take a break from studying and come see us. Coloring pages, along with coloring pencils, and popcorn will be provided.
The Pet Therapy event will be held in memory of Steve Bridges. Steve worked at the library for nearly 30 years and was well liked by students and staff at UNMC. He was a strong believer about going the extra mile to relieve stress for students when they needed it the most.
On April 29, 2016 access to the majority of library electronic resources will require authentication while on-campus. Although this may seem like an inconvenience, it’s a necessary step to ensure compliance with our licenses. Fortunately the username and password you will use to authenticate is the same as your UNMC NetID.
Because of the large number of licensed resources, moving access to this new setup will occur throughout the week beginning April 25, 2016 with the targeted end date of Friday April 29. If you have any questions, please contact Alison Bobal at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Irving Cutter, M.D., was born in 1875 in New Hampshire, and as a boy he came to Nebraska with his family. He graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1898. For six years following graduation he worked as a high school teacher and principal. He graduated from the University of Nebraska College of Medicine in 1910, at age 35. After graduation Cutter practiced medicine in Lincoln for three years, and was also an instructor in physiological chemistry at the University of Nebraska. In 1913 Cutter became professor of biochemistry at the University of Nebraska College of Medicine.
Dr. Cutter became Dean of the University of Nebraska College of Medicine in 1915, and served in this capacity until 1925. He then became Dean of Medicine at Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago. Cutter remained at Northwestern University for 16 years, retiring in 1941. While at Northwestern University, Dr. Cutter also acted as Medical Director of Passavant Hospital in Chicago.
Beginning in 1934, Cutter was medical editor for the Chicago Tribune, writing a daily column on health called “How to Keep Well.” The various topics of his columns cover a wide range of medical topics, from diabetes to poison ivy, and worry as a cause of heart disease to hardening of the arteries.
Cutter served in World War I as a Captain in the Medical Corps of the U.S. Army from 1918-1919, and held the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Officers’ Reserve Corps from 1920-1929.
