Library Research


Health science libraries are uniquely positioned to host art-related events as a means to emphasize the connection between art and medicine. Library faculty and staff at The University of Toledo embraced this idea by inviting members of the community with ties to art and medicine to speak at their annual Health Science Campus Artist Showcase. The goal was to stimulate inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking by bringing together individuals from various departments and disciplines across campus, as well as from the community at large.


Presented at the The Midwest & Midcontinental/Medical Library Association Joint Conference, Merge & Converge: Sixteen in '16, Des Moines, Iowa, October 21-October 25.
