Papers & PresentationsStephanie Harlick, archivist at the Faculty of Medicine’s Founders’ Archive in the Health Sciences Library, exhibited a five-poster vinyl pop-up display in June 2008 at the Canadian Archivists Annual Conference in Fredericton, N.B. Upon returning to St. John’s, the posters were then put on display at The Rooms for the annual general meeting of the Association of Newfoundland and Labrador Archives (ANLA). Ms. Harlick was elected president of ANLA at that event. The poster display was created last fall as a part of the 40th Anniversary celebrations of the Faculty of Medicine by Ms. Harlick in collaboration with Sylvia Ficken, graphic artist at Health Sciences Information and Media Service. The display is based on the virtual exhibit titled The Early Days of the Medical School at Memorial University. The posters are divided into five categories based on the themes of the virtual exhibit: How it all began, Faculty and Staff, Students, The Facilities, and Education and Research.
