Today through 10/14/2017, all students, faculty, and staff may access Counseling and Therapy in Video: Volume V, The Symptom Media Collection

Counseling and Therapy in Video: Volume V, The Symptom Media Collection is perfect for counseling, psychology, social work, medical, nursing, psychiatry, and other behavioral health care courses. This vast collection of 400+ streaming videos aligned to the DSM-5® and ICD-10 content, from 2012 on, range from 30 seconds to 15 minutes and helps students better recognize mental health disorders and provide accurate diagnoses. Volume V also provides assessment options for faculty. For over 90 titles, there are 2 versions of each film available. One includes a title slide that introduces the symptom, preparing students to see what the disorder looks like. The other does not include the title slide. Students make their own diagnoses, enabling faculty to assess student comprehension.

From DNA to Beer: Harnessing Nature in Medicine and Industry

Exhibit - 2nd Floor tower - August 28 - September 28, 2017

The National Library of Medicine, in cooperation with the National Museum of American History, is pleased to present our latest traveling exhibition, From DNA to Beer: Harnessing Nature in Medicine & History. Microbes—tiny organisms too small to be seen with the naked eye—have altered human history. Life forms such as bacteria, yeasts, and molds can cause sickness or restore health, and help produce foods and beverages for our consumption. Drawing from the collections of the National Museum of American History and the National Library of Medicine, From DNA to Beer will help to promote public understanding of the dynamic relationship between microbes, technology, and science and medicine.
