Construction Continues, Disruption Increases, Caring Heightens  external link

Welcome to the exciting world of summer construction, in what you expect to be a quiet, contemplative space; Ebling Library. Our profuse apologies up front. The construction on our 2nd and 3rd floors promises to go at least until the 2nd week of August. After that you will see many spatial enhancements. In the meantime, for your comfort here are a few suggestions.

1) The glassed in Historical Reading Room on the 3rd floor is often quieter than the open spaces. You are welcome to work in there.

2) There are ear protectors near the HSLC 2nd floor elevator, near the Library’s Circulation desk, and will soon be available at the desk itself. Just ask.

3) Go elsewhere (but promise to come back). Steenbock Library is not too far afield, at 550 Babcock Drive. There is a wonderful graduate student lounge at Memorial Library, downtown, at 728 State St. Ask at the front desk, they will point you to the lounge.

4) Go elsewhere (closer). Both the Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy have multiple areas for study, with WiFi, etc.

Please let us know if you need anything during this dynamic interlude.

And this from the School of Medicine & Public Health:
Please remember, the HSLC is going to be a functioning construction site over the next year, so the building will be louder than normal and different areas of the building will be opening and closing on different dates. The construction team is working hard to minimize noise during normal class hours throughout Fall and Spring semesters. We apologize for any inconvenience but are very excited about the big changes to come to the HSLC. Thanks for your continued patience while we improve your building! And here is the UW HSLC Enhancement Project Website

Two views of the 3rd floor former Journal area…it’s changed a wee bit.

Important Changes in Ebling for the Summer  external link

To all those that use Ebling for quiet, solace, relaxation or group study space; first let us apologize for what will be a dynamic summer in this traditionally accommodating building. Interior signs have been promising reconstruction, construction and changes for some time. Today, June 28th, the dismantling of the journal shelves on the 3rd floor began. It is noisy, both in the take down, and in the removal from our site. Once the shelving is removed, construction will begin. As you will read below, many areas will be off limits or severely limited for use. Staff at the Service Desk (2nd) floor can steer you to printers, computers, and available space. Please let us know if we can help during this transitional time at Ebling.

Entire 3rd floor south bar to be closed from July 1 – August 11
No access to group study rooms

1) No access to the bar overlooking the atrium with InfoCommon computers
2) No copy center on 2nd floor
3) 2nd floor Med School printer to be relocated by the Rubinstein Herman files (by 3rd floor freight elevator)
4) 2nd floor B&W Go Print release station to be relocated by the Rubinstein Herman files (by 3rd floor freight elevator)
5) 2nd floor color Go Print release station to be relocated to the 3rd floor copy center
6) 2nd floor copier and scanner to be stored with only access to copying and scanning in the 3rd floor copy center
7) Noise to be expected in the entire building July 1 – August 11
8) Electricity, HVAC and water to have expected down periods

The Historical Reading Room, the glassed area on the 3rd floor with the display cases, may offer some quiet space. Consider finding a temporary new place to study on the west campus during this time period.

After August 14 we can expect a quieter time with group study rooms to be restored, etc.
For an overview of the entire project, visit here.

Humanity in the Art of Medicine  external link

This month and last there were 3 significant pop up exhibits in the 3rd floor Historical Reading Room. A number of artists from Madison’s renowned Bone Folder’s Guild (BFG) looked at about 50 books from Ebling’s Rare Books & Special Collections. They concentrated on a number of small books from the 16th century, especially interested in those that were slightly deconstructed, since, as book makers they are interested in how earlier book binders and artists had constructed the books. We had examples of velum, leather, marbleized end papers, Coptic stitching, gluing, book plates, worm holes, ink shadows, binder’s waste…they could barely contain their delight in being able to pore over and handle these wonderful representations of 16th and 17th century book arts. The bigger illustrated anatomy books were a delight as well, as they discussed what it meant to be an engraver, a printer, a typesetter, and a book binder during an earlier century.

Following the BFG, a number of 4th year medical students, instigated by Scott Lee, came with a very different sensibility than the Guild. They were looking at anatomy books like Vesalius, Bidloo and Eustachae and cross disciplinary texts on surgery, cholera, TB, public health, obstetrics, dermatology, from the early 1500’s to the early 1900’s. While they were generally taken with the age, construction and illustrations within the books- they were most taken with either the accuracy (or inaccuracy) of the illustrations, advice and treatments, and made multiple comments about the phenomenal heritage that represents the history of medical practice. Generally, the anatomical illustrations were lauded for their accuracy, immediacy and beauty, and the interdisciplinary texts were surprising in their modern sensibilities.

The third group were from Professor Josh Calhoun’s “Book Ecology: Then to Now, There to Here,” graduate English seminar, and were looking at books before 1870, that illustrated or described humoral theory and practice. Humoral rational is an ancient Greek theory (pre miasma or germ theory) suggesting that the body is composed of four basic humors such as black bile, yellow bile, phlegm, and blood that were used as a basis to determine the health of an individual. According to this theory, the four humors have to be in balance in order to be healthy. Calhoun’s students poured over many of the same books as the Bone Folders and medical students with an eye to the language being used, the ways humoral theory and practice framed the culture of the doctor and patient, and how such theory informed the literature, like Shakespeare, of that time period. At the end of all these displays we agreed that no matter how the books were being viewed, the constant was the transference of information; historical, humanistic, clinical, and illustrative in the Art (and science) of medicine. If you are interested in a single rare volume, or a display for your like-minded group, contact Micaela, micaela.sullivan-fowler@wisc.edu
