OHSU Library Hosts Visitors from Nihon Institute of Medical Science

This week, instructors and students from the Nihon Institute of Medical Science (NIMS) in Saitama, Japan visited OHSU Library to learn about health sciences education resources at our organization. The group toured the Library with University Librarian Kris Alpi, and received an interactive demonstration of online resources with instruction from Health Sciences Education and Research Librarian Andrew Hamilton.

The visitors also enjoyed a guided hands-on experience with historical materials and a short tour of our current exhibit, hosted by Steve Duckworth and Meg Langford from our Historical Collections & Archives team. The biggest crowd-pleaser was our dental phantom (a manikin, or model used for instruction).

NIMS students enjoyed hands-on experience with artifacts from Historical Collections Archives, including a 1950s dental phantom, or model.
We were honored to receive a certificate of appreciation from our new friends and colleagues at NIMS. It was a great experience to be able to offer our guests a new perspective on health sciences education.
