Archives division of Rowland Medical Library receives award

15 May 2014 9:01 AM | Tina Harry (Administrator)

Connie Machado, Associate Director, has received an award on behalf of the Archives division of Rowland Medical Library/UMMC. The 2014 NN/LM Express Digitization and Conservation Award will be used to purchase necessary equipment for the evaluation of over 300 16mm surgical films, many from Dr. James D. Hardy. Dr. Hardy first transplanted a chimpanzee heart into a human and also performed early lung transplants and adrenal gland surgeries. The equipment purchased will include hand rewinds, splicing equipment, and a light table, along with archival film cases and cores to properly evaluate and store the films that are in the process of being considered for preservation. Films must be evaluated for content, chemical instability, decomposition, shrinkage, splices and value for preservation potential.
