Veterinary Student Artwork on Display – Spring 2017

VetMed News - Fri, 2017-01-13 09:38

Visit the William Rand Kenan, Jr. Library of Veterinary Medicine to see the new artwork installed January 2017. The Library entrance portholes feature reproductions of veterinary student artwork from the Spring 2016 Veterinary Illustration Selective VMC 991-29 taught by Dr. Michael K. Stoskopf, Professor of Aquatics, Wildlife, and Zoologic Medicine and of Molecular and Environmental Toxicology.

Veterinary Illustration is a one-week studio course taught at the CVM each spring. It offers veterinary students the opportunity to hone their observation as well as their drawing and illustration skills with live observations at the Teaching Animal Unit and other locations. Students became familiar with basic drawing and pen and ink techniques with an emphasis on rendering from three dimensional objects, living animals, and photographs from books and journals in the Libraries’ collections. To learn more about the course, and other art and design efforts at the CVM, read the article “Creativity and a Critical Eye” (pg. 7-8) in the NCSU Libraries Focus magazine

Fourteen works highlighting a variety of drawing techniques were selected by a jury of faculty, staff and librarian judges. The seven listed below came on display January 13, 2017 and will be on display through this summer.

Special Collections Display in Veterinary Medicine Library

VetMed News - Tue, 2017-01-10 10:37

Currently on display in the William Rand Kenan Jr. Library of Veterinary Medicine is a selection of items highlighting the history of the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine, a legacy preserved and shared by the Special Collections Research Center. The display features materials that tell the story of the evolution of the College of Veterinary Medicine, focusing especially on the administrators, faculty, and students at the heart of that story. Below is a preview of the items on display – visit the Veterinary Medicine Library to see more!

Veterinary Medicine campus site, circa 1977.

The two original barns were built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in the 1930s. The site became the University Dairy Farm for NC State in 1940, before becoming part of the original campus of the School of Veterinary Medicine (later re-named the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1987).  Photographs located in the Terrence M. Curtin Papers (MC 00420).

Terrence Curtin, founding dean of the NCSU School of Veterinary Medicine, serving from 1979-1992.

A biography of founding dean Terrence Curtin, in the 1984 “Fact Book” for School of Veterinary Medicine, is located in the NCSU Office of Equal Opportunity and Equity Records (UA 005.009).

NCSU Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medicine Association, featured in 1984 Vet Med yearbook, "VetCetera."

The NCSU Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medicine Association (SCAVMA) was founded in 1981, by the first class of students enrolled in the School of Veterinary Medicine. Image above is found in the Vet Med 1984 yearbook, “VetCetera,” located in the College of Veterinary Medicine Publications (UA 145.200).

Installing whale skeleton in College of Veterinary Medicine building, 1988.

The College of Veterinary Medicine installed a whale skeleton in its main building in 1988, after collecting the skeleton from the Outer Banks in 1986 through the work of faculty members J.W. Doyle, Ed Smallwood, and Paul Nader, as well as Vet Med student and faculty volunteers and the National Guard. The above photographs are located in the Terrence M. Curtin Papers (MC 00420). More information on the skeleton discovery and installation can be found in the Technician article below.

Technician article, Oct. 1, 1986: “Skeleton gave Vet School ‘whale’ of a job”

These items and more will be on display in the Vet Med Library through the spring 2017 semester.

You can learn more about the history of the College of Veterinary Medicine through its Historical State timeline, and in other collection materials in the SCRC, including digitized photographs, documents, folders, and a written history by founding dean Terrence M. Curtin. If you have questions about the display or about these or other items in the SCRC, please contact us!

The Best Book I Read This Year and VML reading recommendations

VetMed News - Fri, 2016-12-16 09:02

Looking for some recreational reading over the Winter Holiday? Check out the NCSU Libraries’ The Best Book I Read This Year blog for suggestions with brief reviews from NCSU Libraries’ faculty, staff, students and others. If you are looking for something you can pick up at the VML, how about these two recommendations:

The World of Caffeine, by Bennett Alan Weinberg and Bonnie K. Bealer. This wide-ranging “natural, cultural, and artistic history of our favourite mood enhancer” covers the history and science of the drug from Tea to No-Doz and everything in between. A perfect book to grab when you are looking to curl up with a hot mug of the caffeine delivery system of your choice.

Bird Brain: An Exploration of Avian Intelligence is an accessible yet rigorous new look at the avian mind by primatologist-turned-ornithologist Dr. Nathan Emery. Full of beautiful and informative illustrations, Bird Brain covers the earliest experiments in avian intelligence right up to the latest research into birds’ cognitive capacity and offers insightful and surprising conclusions about how our feathered friends think, and what that means for our more general assumptions about animal (and human!) intelligence.
