‘Trauma of War’ Mask Exhibit, Luncheon, and Speaker on Nov. 20

A photo exhibit titled “Unmasking the Trauma of War” will soon be on display at the Health Sciences and Human Services Library’s (HS/HSL) Weise Gallery featuring masks that were created by military service members participating in art therapy sessions at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) in Bethesda, Md.

The masks explore the themes of patriotism, duality of self, and the physical and psychological pain so often experienced by our military service members.

A luncheon to kick off the exhibit featuring guest speaker Melissa Walker, MA, ATR, an art therapist and the Healing Arts Program Coordinator at NICoE, will be held Nov. 20 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Gladhill Board Room on the fifth floor of the HS/HSL. Walker will discuss the masks and show several of them at the luncheon. For more information, click here.

To attend this event, please RSVP to events@hshsl.umaryland.edu. Seating is limited.

HS/HSL Provides Online Toolkit for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

The Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HS/HSL) has put together a toolkit of information for entrepreneurs and innovators on campus interested in learning more about intellectual property, starting a company, innovating, and other related topics.

The guide was constructed with the help of innovative individuals at UMB and is a work in progress — to be updated with future suggestions from innovators around campus who would like to contribute to the toolkit.

If you know of a resource that would make a nice addition to the toolkit, please email the HS/HSL at entre@hshsl.umaryland.edu. If you are including a web page or a website that you are directly responsible for, please include a note with permission to link to it.

HS/HSL Adds Canvas Poster Printing Option

The Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HS/HSL) now offers a canvas printing option for fabric posters that have the same great resolution and quality you’ve come to expect from its glossy paper prints.

Canvas is a great option if you need a poster you can fold up in a suitcase or want a more durable poster that can stand up to multiple exhibits and frequent moving and packing.

Compared to the library’s paper option, the lightweight canvas material has a slightly higher brightness rating, a nonshiny matte finish, and very subtle canvas texture. Samples are available for viewing in the first-floor display case at the HS/HSL.

The canvas printing option is available on the print request form for $60 per poster. Please see our poster printing guide for details, suggestions, and the submission form. The library also will provide rigid cardboard carrying tubes upon request.
