Happy Holidays From the Research Medical Library !

The holidays are a great time to catch up on all of your special projects. Here's how the library can help:

  1. Find some peace and quiet by reserving one of three private Study Rooms online. These rooms are a great space for studying in groups, practicing an oral presentation or just getting away from the office or lab.

  2. Get help from a librarian with finding articles and information online or in-person. If you need assistance finding an article or performing a literature search, don’t hesitate to call, chat or stop by the library for support.

  3. Get Access on and off-campus:

    From your iPad or Tablet

    From home – Log-in from our homepage to access all of our subscriptions off-campus.

    From the library where assistance is available Mon-Fri 7:30am to 7:00pm.

See How the Oral History Collection has Grown

Renilda Hilkemeyer R.N.The "Making Cancer History© Voices" collection documents the history of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Personal interviews with the men and women of MD Anderson who dedicated their careers to eliminating cancer provide unique insights into a host of important social, medical, political, and scientific developments related to cancer. The project’s goal is to convey the many facets of the birth of oncology as a medical discipline; the emergence and evolution of surgery, diagnostic radiology, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy; the rise of nursing oncology; the impact of genetics and molecular biology on medical research; and cancer's place in the evolution of public health policy.

Listen to the Making Cancer History Voices Collection.
