Tampa Bay Book Display: Welcome

Each month, the Tampa Bay Regional Campus Library will showcase books in two specific categories: Take a Second and Topics in Healthcare.


Are you getting the most from your library experience?

At the Tampa Bay Regional Campus, most people know that the library offers reserve textbooks and study rooms.  They don't know that we offer programming like curated book displays and drop-in study breaks with snacks.  This library guide will feature two monthly book displays: Take a Second and Topics in Healthcare.  Books on the display pages will be divided by format (i.e. e-book, e-audiobook, or print book).  

  • Click the Current Display tab or the gallery below for this month's featured content. 
  • Click the Past Displays tab to find curated content from earlier this year.

“It’s too late to save all our stuff, but we can still save one another and a great many other species too. Let’s put out the flames and build something different in its place. Something a little less ornate, but with room for all those who need shelter and care.” 

“Let's start with the end of the world, why don't we? Get it over with and move on to more interesting things.”

“Concepts of triage and medical rationing are a barometer of how those in power in a society value human life.”

“We have built so many toxic constructs, we cannot see through the latticework. We have built so many mirrors, there are no windows to shatter.” 

“Minority activists became more deliberate in their environmental activism – they linked environment with racial and other kinds of social inequalities and framed the issues in terms of rights to safe and healthy environments.”

“Medical pioneers also saw the importance of photography. Images of wounds and anatomical specimens would become useful teaching tools. The era of medical imagery had begun.”

“No one at the start of the war knew how to organize a medical system to care for the millions of men who suddenly found themselves under government guardianship, much less how to care for the 4 million slaves who traveled erratically toward freedom as the war progressed.”

“As the war becomes more distant, the medical world which made such an impression on contemporaries has largely faded from view. Little is remembered of the many thousands who worked on the Western Front or in other theaters as doctors, orderlies, and nurses; still less of their patients.”

“Although the political consequences of wartime propaganda and Army education may be questionable, there can be little doubt that they ensured a continued commitment to the health and wellbeing of soldiers. In a political climate in which health care was seen as a right rather than a privilege, the high-handed neglect that typified previous wars was inconceivable.”

Requesting a Print Book (Tampa Bay)

Since this month's selections feature books that the library only possesses in physical copies on the Davie Campus, here's a quick how-to video on how to order print books as a distance user.  If you're here in Tampa Bay or at another regional campus, this means you!  Take a look.

Take a Second Series: Adulting & Professionalism

Take a Second has always focused on broadening horizons and the practice of mindfulness by using narratives on marginalized communities and practical advice. This year, Take a Second will evolve once more and the focus will be YOU!   This shift in focus will still include a diverse collection of voices, but the narratives will fall within five areas of life where every healthcare professional needs a strong foundation.  The five areas are: 

  • Interpersonal Relationships,  

  • the World At Large,  

  • Patient Care,  

  • the Professional Sphere and  

  • Economics.   

Whether you’re still trying to figure out how to navigate a topic or you could use just some pointers from an expert, our yearlong series, ADULTING & PROFESSIONALISM, has got you covered!   

Our current topic is the WORLD AT LARGE and the collection title is Climate Change and Healthcare.  This collection will focus on climate change and its impact on healthcare!  Click on the Current Display tab to learn more and see selected titles! 

Topic in Healthcare Series: History of Medicine

Topics in Healthcare has always focused on the connection between healthcare providers and the practice of healthcare with an emphasis on providing greater transparency in marginalized communities.  This year, we will shift to a series that explores how medicine became formalized healthcare and its manifestation in various aspects of medicine. The five aspects are: 

  • Origins of Medicine,  

  • Military Medicine,  

  • Social Justice & Ethics,  

  • the War on Disease, and  

  • Innovation & Technology.   

In our series, the HISTORY OF MEDICINE, the selected texts use these categories to demonstrate how effectively healthcare has navigated different aspects of the mandate to Do No Harm using a range of examples from ancient civilizations to today! 

Our current topic is the MILITARY MEDICINE and the collection title is In the Trenches.  This collection will focus on the impact of global conflicts on medicine and healthcare! Click on the Current Display tab to learn more and see selected titles!
