This week we are celebrating #ColorOurCollections with other libraries, archives, and cultural institutions around the world! This week-long social media initiative was launched by The New York Academy of Medicine Library in 2016. Participating institutions are sharing free coloring pages made using materials from their collections.
The coloring pages from our collection can be found here. They include two drawings made by Robert Blake, a legendary medical artist at Duke. Along with his illustrations of the Davison building and muscles in the foot, you can also find a drawing of a nurse from an old School of Nursing publication. After you’ve colored our pages, check out the pages from the other 141 institutions here.
Download the pages, get creative, and share your coloring online using the hashtag #ColorOurCollections. We can’t wait to see all of the finished products!
