This year marks the 50th anniversary of the UT Health School of Nursing and celebrations are in full swing! Through a unique collaboration with the School of Nursing, the Library is assisting in bringing the rich history of the nursing school to life. This collaboration started a little over a year ago and has proven to be a very fruitful endeavor. Librarians, library staff and nursing school historians have worked together to organize, identify, and digitize hundreds of photographs in preparation for the 50th anniversary. Many images were used to produce multiple exhibits and slideshows throughout the school during the Open House and Visionary Leader Awards Luncheon on March 2. The library will continue to develop the nursing school historical collection of history books, class photos, and oral histories, which will soon be available in the library’s Digital Archive.
