Library Hosts New NLM Traveling Exhibit

Pick Your Poison: Intoxicating Pleasures & Medical Prescriptions be on display in the Library from June 1 through July 11, 2015.

The six-banner traveling exhibition covers the history of tobacco,alcohol, cocaine, opium, and marijuana in this country. Pick Your Poison: Intoxicating Pleasures & Medical Prescriptions explores the factors that have shaped the changing definitions of some of our most potent drugs, from medical miracle to social menace.

The Medical Library will supplement the exhibit with relevant posters from SIU School of Medicine researchers and books from the Library's Special Collections.
