History Matters! a new exhibition on the history of anaesthesia

23 January to 12 May 2013AnaestheticWeb_156

Painless surgery is a modern phenomenon, but the concept was an ancient one. The exhibition includes many of the pioneering works of 16th to 19th century medical science, which transformed the idea into a reality.

Presented by the Australian Society of Anaesthetists and the University of Sydney Library this joint exhibition features rarely seen books from the University Library’s Rare Books and Special Collections and the Richard Bailey Library, in association with retired anaesthetic equipment from the Harry Daly Museum.

Where: Exhibition Space, Level 2, Fisher Library

 We have listened to your feedback! From 16 January 2013 our alumni members can request (recall) items from all locations and not just from Storage. We have also increased the number of electronic resources that alumni can access off-campus. We will continue negotiating with our vendors to enable us to provide alumni with even more off-campus access to electronic resources.
