A Word from the Library
Sometimes an alum calls or emails wishing to donate to the Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine (KSUCPM), other times past graduates will stop by with a box to drop off. Last month, a box of journals arrived in the mail anonymously! Donna Perzeski, the CPM library director, is always happy to hear from an alum and especially grateful when they have items to donate. For example, in the past year, the library has received some lower extremity human bone collections, several anatomical foot models, medical instruments and bag, a diploma from 1933, podiatry journals from 1917-1919, and many books. The old books may be discarded, but the human bones will be well used and appreciated by current students studying for anatomy exams!
The KSUCPM Library accepts gifts in-kind of new and used books, journals, photos, and yearbooks as well as medical instruments and items related to KSUCPM, the Ohio College of Chiropody, the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, or the profession of podiatric medicine. Gifts that are in good condition and within the scope of the library collection may be used as an additional or replacement copy. If historically significant, items will be considered for the Archives Collection. Materials not retained may be offered to other libraries, faculty or students.
