The HSHSL Calendar is back for 2024! Unlike last year’s Fatal Beauty calendar, the 2024 offerings invite you to Taste each month’s botanical in savory or sweet dishes and drinks. The calendar features botanicals, flavors, and spices from around the world. Each month you will learn about the botanicals’ native region, discover the cuisine in which it is commonly found, as well as traditional and modern medicinal uses.
As with past calendars, the botanicals in Taste were selected from three volumes in the HSHSL’s Historical Collections Pharmacy Collection: William Curtis and Sir William Jackson Hooker’s The Botanical Magazine, Franz Eugen Kohler’s Medicinal-Pflanzen…, and William Woodville’s Medicinal Botany. The Pharmacy Historical Collection contains influential pharmacy and medical texts, as well as dispensatories, pharmacopoeias, botanicals, and herbals from around the world dating from the 17th century.
The calendar content was written and provided by Tara Wink, Historical Collections Librarian and Archivist with help from Summer 2023 Youth Works Intern Anisah Allen, and designed by Thom Pinho, Lead Instructional Technology Specialist.
A limited number of calendars will be for sale on our website for $10 apiece. They make fantastic gifts!

The renovation of the third floor is complete, with new study pods, study room tables and chairs, diner-style banquettes, computer tables with second monitors, and new carpet. The new study area is light-filled and comfortable – a destination space. Previously, the third floor housed print journals. Over the past several years, the Library has purchased online access to some of these journals, which has allowed us to free up more study space by recycling the print volumes and removing unnecessary shelving.
Please stop by the third floor to see the beautiful light and views from the Library’s third floor.

The HSHSL Weise Gallery is hosting a fascinating exhibit by artist Dahven White. “Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts” showcases White’s amazing felt artwork. Felting is widely considered the world’s oldest textile art. White primarily uses sheep’s wool and recycled sweaters to create unpredictable three-dimensional organic shapes. Her art and wearables have been featured in many juried exhibitions and art shows.
“Greater Than the Sum of its Parts” runs from October 2 – December 15, 2023.
Have you ever had to pay to read an academic article for your research?
Did you know the for-profit academic publishing industry generates around $25.2 billion annually?
The HSHSL invites you for a free screening of the film Paywall: The Business of Scholarship on Oct. 24 in the HSHSL Collaborative Learning Room (LL02) from noon to 1:30pm. Pizza will be provided!
This documentary delves into the importance of unrestricted access to research and scientific knowledge. Paywall: The Business of Scholarship questions the reasoning behind the rising cost of journal publications. It explores companies like Elsevier and compares its massive profit margins with giant tech companies like Apple, Facebook, and Google.
Join HSHSL librarians after the screening for conversation about the film and about different approaches to scholarly publishing and how well they prioritize the best interests of the public and the academic community.
