Being Human: medicine and poetry display

Learn more about the display at Dykes Library from public services assistant and display creator, Christina:

 April was National Poetry Month and, although I was a little late getting the display up, the Being Human medicine and poetry display is now finished. I have seen several students looking at the displayed materials (we even checked out one of the books yesterday) and the “magnetic” poetry board has been put to use. The display has materials from both Dykes Library stacks and Clendening, as well as articles from PubMed that discuss the validity of poetry in a medical practice. Each of the books should have either a Clendening bookmark, or a bookmark showcasing “Aphasia,” a poem by Noah Capurso for the Yale UCL Medical Students Poetry Competition. Hopefully this is the first of many interesting displays, as we plan on rotating them throughout the year.
Be sure to check it out today!
