Webinar on November 6, 2020: a special conversation on the history and fight against polio from a child’s perspective
Impact of Materials on Society: the class, the TED talk, the Open Access textbook.
We’re preparing for our next issue of SOURCE, including a special issue or featured series on our destination spaces and places in the Libraries!
A behind-the-scenes look at the Libraries
In early 2020, the LibraryPress@UF published My Scrapbook of My Illness with Polio by Edna Black and Lassie G. Black, with contributing editor Nina Stoyan-Rosenzweig, and designer Tracy MacKay-Ratliff. The book is available as Open Access online and in print.
LibraryPress@UF has been awarded the 2019 LoPresti Award by the Southeast Chapter of the Art Libraries Society of North America for the publication Madagascar from A to Z in the Children’s Book category.
Recounted in the form of a journal, this story shows how Americans in the 1940s understood and treated polio.
