Dr. Kildare. MASH. Scrubs. Grey’s Anatomy. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Call the Midwife.
These are just a few of the hit movies and TV shows that have captured the funny, dramatic, and mysterious sides of medicine.
Please join us at Miner Library on Wednesday, January 29 at HIGH NOON when librarians Linda Hasman and Valorie Hallinan will take you on a whirlwind tour of medical drama on the screen and how it has changed to reflect the times.
Sit back, relax (bring your lunch or popcorn if you’d like) and enjoy scenes from classic and ground-breaking drama, and some of the latest and greatest shows still in production. We’ll solve a few medical mysteries and watch a medical “blooper” or two, when the writers and directors obviously forgot to consult the experts.
Everyone is welcome to this free event. For more information, contact Linda Hasman at 275-3399 or Valorie Hallinan at 275-6873.

Quintessence Publishing, the publishers who publish some of our most popular dental journals, have been updating their website, and several Bibby users have reported trouble accessing journal articles online. Three journals are particularly tricky to access:
Journal of Adhesive Dentistry
International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry
(JOMI) International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants
1) articles “not found” by search option on website.
2) no option given on abstract page for login to access content
3) sometimes password is not recognized by the website and full access is denied.
If you experience trouble accessing these journals, please contact us for help. Quintessence has been contacted regarding these technical issues.
