Explore the history of the Eccles Health Sciences Library in our seven-part digital exhibition series that highlights each decade of the library’s existence as well as the medical libraries on campus prior to 1971.

 

This digital exhibition series was developed based off the physical 45th Anniversary Exhibits celebrating the Eccles Library’s 45th Anniversary in 2016 created by Bryan E. Hull, Heidi Greenberg, and Joan Stoddart. Joan wrote a three part history of the library celebrating the 40th Anniversary in 2011 that served as the basis for the content of these exhibits. The 50th Anniversary Logo was designed by Peter Strohmeyer.
