National Heart Month

January has been designated as “National Heart Month” by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services along with the American Heart Association.  It is important for everyone to know and understand the symptoms of heart attack and stroke because these symptoms can vary from men to women.  During the month of February, the IHSL  will have a display consisting of information on the topic of Women’s Heart Health.  Stop by the 3rd floor of Oboler Library and learn about Heart Health.

Most Horrible and Shocking Murders

Halloween is a favorite holiday for many of us.  Here at the IHSL we decided to go with a theme for our current display that connects with this Holiday!  With the help of the National Library of Medicine’s “History of Medicine” website, we gleaned some “shocking” material for this display.  We then added books on similar subject matters. .  Stop by to see for yourself some of the interesting material available at your library!  You may also like to visit the NLM’s website on this topic!





WOW — Week of Welcome

Students, Faculty and Staff welcome to Fall semester at ISU!  Stop by the Health Sciences Library on the 3rd floor of the Oboler Library and find out what new resources we have available for your research needs!!



ISU Library Staff are supporting Portneuf Valley Bike to Work Month by participating in the Team Challenge!!  Team members must bike to work more than 60% of the time to meet the Challenge — “biking to work” includes: bicycling, walking, carpooling or taking public transit.

New this year is an additional opportunity to participate!  Team members who cannot participate in the “biking to work” category may substitute 20 minutes of “other” exercise as their means of participating.

Whether you participate in this fun activity or just get motivated to get additional exercise, you will be on your way to a more healthful lifestyle!!!

Stop by the IHSL, located on the 3rd floor of the Oboler Library, and check out our display for information on bicycle safety and rules of the road.
