Faculty Life – A New Collection at the Savitt Medical Library

The Savitt Medical Library has started a new collection of resources for faculty. The collection is called Faculty Life and is located in the first shorter row of our book stacks. The collection is small but growing.  It will eventually include many topics related to faculty, but initially we have focused on teaching. Below is a list of some of the books. We have also acquired copies of some of the titles for our Savitt at Renown branch.
