THE FRIENDS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY LIBRARY
invite you to a guided tour of:
Sense and Sensibilities: history of the neurosciences
By Dr Cate Storey, President, Medical Alumni Association
Dr Cate Storey will take you on a guided tour of the history of neurosciences exhibition.
The brain must surely be the most fascinating of all human organs. The early anatomists first explored its secrets; the physiologists began to investigate its pathways; the clinicians made clinic-pathological connections but we still have much to learn. This display includes many of the original works of the 14th to 19th centuries, which laid the foundations of our current knowledge of the neurosciences.
Refreshments will be served.
TIME: 6pm – 7pm Wednesday 25 September 2013
WHERE: Exhibition Space, Level 2, Fisher North, Fisher Library
RSVP: by Monday 23 September 2013

To try and help free up desk space in the University of Sydney Libraries, the library staff are going to start regular walk around as required. It seems that some clients are leaving personal items on the study desks and computers.
There is also a concern about the increased risk of theft of these items. To see how this process will work, please take a look at the Library’s Guideline for the removal of unattended items.
If you have any questions please speak to Library staff at the Information Desk.
ARTstor and The National Gallery, London have collaborated to share images of every painting in the museum’s permanent collection in the Digital Library.

The importance of this collection cannot be overstated, with works by masters such as Fra Angelico, Bellini, Botticelli, Bronzino, Courbet, Corot, Constable, Lucas Cranach the Elder, Degas, Delacroix, Duccio, Anthony van Dyck, Piero della Francesca, Caspar David Friedrich, Gainsborough, Gauguin, Ghirlandaio, Goya, Frans Hals, Hogarth, Ingres, Fra Filippo Lippi, Manet, Mantegna, Michelangelo, Monet, Pissarro, Poussin, Raphael, Renoir, Rubens, Seurat, Titian, Turner, Veronese, Leonardo da Vinci, and Vuillard.
