Illustrated character with glasses and a beak.

Scourge: Diseases That Shaped History is a new exhibit curated by the four UAB Art History Capstone students of Assistant Professor of Art History, Noa Turel. Students Kelsey Jones, Oakleigh Pinson, Tina Ruggieri, and Brooklynne Todd created the exhibit using historical books and artifacts, all of which are held within the collections of the Alabama Museum of the Health Sciences and the Reynolds-Finley Historical Library. It is on display on the 3rd floor of Lister Hill Library of the Health Sciences until May 31, 2019. This fascinating new exhibit can be viewed from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

UAB Libraries Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Many libraries suspend ILL Borrowing and Document Delivery services during the holidays, making it difficult for us to fill UAB patrons’ requests.

Sterne Library will suspend ILL services for borrowing and document delivery between Saturday, December 15, 2018 and Tuesday, January 1, 2019.

Toys for Tots logo.

At UAB Libraries, we are again holding our Toys for Fines holiday charity drive to bring smiles to children who may not otherwise receive gifts this holiday season. Library users with overdue fines (current or prior) can have up to $20 waived when they donate a new, unwrapped toy for a child (infant through 12 years of age) to the Toys for Tots drive. These contributions will support UAB’s 25th Annual Holiday Toy Drive in conjunction with Toys for Tots to benefit local children.

Building news.

UAB is implementing a building safety plan that will promote greater control over access to campus facilities and employ additional technologies to enhance security for faculty, staff and students. As a result, UAB Libraries (Lister Hill Library and Mervyn H. Sterne Library) will both transition to card access for UAB faculty, staff, and students, including HSF employees.
