True Confessions: a new method for gathering qualitative data.

Annie Epperson, Head of Library Research Services, University of Northern Colorado Libraries

Annie will discuss the video booth method that she has used to gather data from patrons, including outlining the simple steps for setting up the booth and recruiting participants. Administrative details like securing appropriate permissions, as well as practicalities and paradigmatic considerations, will be covered.  Gather data quickly, leaving more time for analysis!

Revolutionary Medicine: The Founding Fathers and Mothers in Sickness and in Health

Jeanne Abrams, Director of the Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Society and the Ira M. Beck Memorial Archives, University of Denver Libraries

Jeanne will discuss her book, Revolutionary Medicine (NYU Press, 2013), which details the lives of George and Martha Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John and Abigail Adams, and Dolley Madison. Learn how illness affected early American lives in a time before antibiotics, and how this period shaped modern American public health. Buy signed copies at the meeting! 

"Revolutionary Medicine...is a readable and eye-opening account. We know so much about the Founders, but we rarely pause to think just how difficult 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness' can be when you lack a good doctor or science-based care."-The Wall Street Journal
