UAB Libraries are again holding our Toys for Fines holiday charity drive to bring smiles to children who may not otherwise receive gifts this holiday season. Library users with overdue fines (current or prior) can have up to $20 waived when they donate a new, unwrapped toy for a child (infant through 12 years of age) to the Toys for Tots drive. These contributions will support UAB’s 26th Annual Holiday Toy Drive in conjunction with Toys for Tots to benefit local children.

UAB Libraries and UAB’s Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) have similar goals: to increase learning through enhancing faculty teaching skills. A collaboration between these two entities can lead to student success and faculty teaching improvement. As the amount of information available through the library and online increases, defining and narrowing relevant resources has become more difficult.

The Reynolds-Finley Associates, in conjunction with the Historical Collections (HC) unit of UAB Libraries, University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), are pleased to announce the availability of short-term awards of up to $2,500 to individual researchers studying one or more aspects of the history of the health sciences during the 2020 calendar year. Intended to support research using the HC unit as a historical resource, the fellowship requires the on-site use of at least one of the unit’s three components, which are the Alabama Museum of the Health Sciences, Reynolds-Finley Historical Library, and UAB Archives. All materials must be submitted by January 31, 2020 to receive consideration. Awards will be announced by February 28, 2020. For more information and application details, visit the fellowship page.
