Welcome BookScan Station to the Library!

Remember When Copiers Were Cool!  
And Disco was as Good as it Got?

Instead of killing trees (that's so 70s), you can now scan book chapters, articles, etc and easily save to a drive or email - to be read later on your computer. BookScan Station has an easy to use touchscreen interface.  Come to the library and stop copying and start scanning and reading onscreen. (You do read onscreen.  Don't you?)

Rewriting the Book of Nature - Darwin Exhibit

Lehman Library presents a National Library of Medicine exhibit “Rewriting the Book of Nature: Charles Darwin and the Rise of Evolutionary Theory”
February 14, 2011 – March 26, 2011 - Main Floor Gallery

The exhibit explores Charles Darwin’s vision — “from so simple a beginning, endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved” — a vision that now forms the foundation of the biological sciences. Radical in sweep, Darwin’s idea of naturally innovating and endlessly changing webs of life undercut all previous sciences.

Please bring your classes to view the exhibit or encourage students to visit the exhibit on their own.
