    Mysterious Show Globes of the Apothecary
    The Waring Historical Library at the Medical University of South Carolina announces the opening of this new web exhibit at

    Throughout history, professionals have searched for recognizable signs and symbols to represent their occupation.  These symbols serve not only to call attention to businesses, specifically in times of low literacy, but also to distinguish a career field among the rest.  Much like the mortar and pestle as a sign of apothecaries, show globes, glass vessels of varying sizes and shapes, hold a significant and intriguing history as a symbol of early pharmacists. This exhibit, by MUSC/SCCP PharmD candidate Jessica Patton, explores the myths and facts of show globes featuring examples from the private collection of Medical University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy Distinguished Professor Dr. C. WayneWeart.

    For more information about the web exhibit, please contact Jennifer Welch, Digital Archivist,

    AccessMedicine: Print Chapter Posted Wednesday, August 31, 2011, 11:38 am
    At the present time AccessMedicine is removing the PRINT CHAPTER option. The PRINT SECTION option will REMAIN available. The publisher provided the following reason for this immediate change: Last week the new edition of Harrisons Principles of Internal Medicine was discovered circulating on a number of digital lockers, torrent sites, and other means of illicit file sharing. A quick examination of the file revealed that the parties who had created it simply printed every chapter of Harrisons, then bound it as an ebook and started distributing it. Presently, the Print Chapter view makes it far too easy to accomplish a task like this.
