Loma Linda University is currently hosting the National Library of Medicine’s (NLM) traveling exhibit, Pictures of Nursing: The Zwerdling Postcard Collection. It will be on display in the lobby of the Del E. Webb Memorial Library thru April 22nd.
The exhibit features six panels which explore the relationship of nursing to significant forces in 20th-century life, like war and disease, and how nursing was seen during those times as portrayed on postcards. The post cards are reproductions of items contained in the Zwerdling Postcard Collection which was acquired by the History of Medicine Division, National Library of Medicine. The archive of 2,588 postcards came from American nurse and collector, Michael Zwerdling, RN. This unique archive consists of postcards with images of nurses and the nursing profession from around the world, produced between 1893 and 2011, with many examples coming from the ‘Golden Age’ of postcards—roughly 1907 to 1920.
The exhibit arrived just in time to be installed for Loma Linda University’s annual alumni homecoming week-end in March and will continue to be on exhibit as the students arrive for the beginning of Spring Quarter. The accompanying online version of the exhibit can be viewed via the National Library of Medicine’s website by clicking here.
This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health. Curated by Julia Hallam, PhD.
The library’s student break room on 3rd now has a Keurig machine. Bring your own K-Cups and drink containers.

ScienceDirect, features full-text access to major science, technology and medicine journals and books. On January 1, 2016, ScienceDirect will no longer support access to these resources from Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 8 browser. Modern browser versions such as Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox are fully supported by ScienceDirect.
It is the library’s understanding that the medical center maybe using the outdated Internet Explorer 8 browser. It is recommended that those affected contact the medical center information services help desk (x48889) to request an update to Internet Explorer or the install of a supported browser to continue to access ScienceDirect after January 1, 2016. You might also be aware that PubMed dropped support of Internet Explorer 8 as of January 1, 2013. Many features of PubMed do not display properly in Internet Explorer 8.
Internet Explorer 8 was initially released on March 19, 2009 and was the last IE version supported on Windows XP. Windows XP support ended April 8, 2014 which effectively ended IE 8. IE 8 support officially ends January 12, 2016. The current Internet Explorer version is 11 and has many features that make it more secure.

The third floor renovation is nearly complete, only a few details to finish up on. So what’s next? The basement. Changes in the basement will be fairly major. The south half of the floor will house the IT help desk as well as the rest of the IT team that are now housed near the Randall Amphitheater. There will also be a suite of academic offices on the south west wall. The remaining north half of the floor will be designed for quiet individual study space. Work is ongoing on the plans with construction scheduled to begin in late spring.
