"Impediments to the Dream: The Prison Industrial Complex and the Dream"
Monday, January 21, 2013
Michigan Union Rogel Ballroom
Free and open to the public
Dr. Davis will speak on "Impediments to the Dream: The Prison Industrial Complex and the Dream." Angela Davis, Distinguished Professor Emerita from the University of California Santa Cruz, is internationally known for her decades of work fighting oppression of all forms. She particularly urges us to think about a world without prisons and discusses alternatives to the American prison industrial complex.
After her presentation, Dr. Davis will be signing copies of her recent book, The Meaning of Freedom, which will be available for purchase prior to the talk.
The presentation will be streamed remotely in the Union Pendelton Room, The Hatcher Graduate Library Gallery, The Duderstadt Building Conference room 1180, the Detroit Center, and the College of Arts, Sciences & Letters Building Auditorium (room 1030), U-Μ Dearborn.
The program is sponsored by the University Library, The School of Information, University Housing, The Law Library, the Bentley Historical Library, The Center for Campus Involvement, The Global Scholars Program, the Office of Academic Multicultural Initiatives, The Office of Multi-ethnic Student Affairs, U-M Dearborn African and African American Studies Program, Women's Studies,Understanding Race Theme Semester Committee, Residence Hall Councils, and Students Organizing Against Prisons.

Please note that many of the materials in our Homeopathy Collection have been digitally scanned, and their full text is available on line. The search interface for the documents available on line is at the following URL: http://www.hti.umich.edu/h/homeop.
This guide was compiled to facilitate locating Taubman Health Sciences Library’s homeopathic materials. As noted above, many items from this collection have been scanned, and are available on line. The search interface for the documents available on line is at the following URL: http://www.hti.umich.edu/h/homeop. The print materials in the Homeopathy Collection have been stored in various places including: Buhr Shelving Facility at Green and Hoover Streets, the Serials and Microfilms department on the second floor of the south section of the Hatcher Graduate Library, the Taubman Health Sciences Library stacks or Rare Book Room, secondary storage on the second floor of Taubman Health Sciences Library, Hatcher Graduate Library, and Bentley Historical Library. The subjects highlighted by the Guide are presented as illustrations of various topics that are available in the collection and by no means constitute an exhaustive list of materials. For further information, please see the Mirlyn library catalog.
The formerly-used printed card catalog, located on the fifth level near the Technical Processing Office of Taubman Health Sciences Library, has drawers #142 and #143 dedicated to the holdings of both monographs and journals in the homeopathic field, with location annotations in many instances. Researchers should also note that delicate or older materials, when not in the Rare Book Room, may have been moved to a storage area, a change not necessarily accurately reflected in the Mirlyn Online Catalog. (Check with staff at Reference desk.)
HISTORY: The homeopathy collection at the University of Michigan originated in the holdings of the Homeopathic Medical College, first established as part of the University in Ann Arbor in 1875 and conducted concurrently with the allopathic Medical School until 1922. There was also a Homeopathic Hospital in existence locally from 1879 until 1891. For a more complete history see:
"The Homeopathic Medical College." In: The University of Michigan: An Encyclopedic Survey, edited by Wilfred B. Shaw, vol. 2, pp. 1003-1012. Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 1994. (Also available electronically)
The Making of the University of Michigan 1817-1992, by Howard H. Peckham, edited and updated by Margaret L. Steneck and Nicholas H. Steneck. Ann Arbor: University of Michigan, Bentley Historical Library, 1997.
The collection itself contains items dating from the mid-1800’s to the present day. Of particular interest is the Bradford Homeopathy Collection, which is composed of 1027 pamphlets that detail 75 years of the history and development of the field of homeopathic medicine. Along with the holdings of the former Homeopathic Library, these pamphlets constitute one of the most complete collections on the subject.
Homeopathy (homeo=similar; pathos=suffering) is a system of therapy developed in the early nineteenth century by Samuel Hahnemann, based on the “law of infinitesimal doses” or in similia similibus curantur (likes are cured by likes), which holds that a medical substance that can evoke certain symptoms in healthy people may be effective in the treatment of illnesses having symptoms closely resembling those produced by the substance.1

- What is Cited Reference Searching? • Allows you to search for articles that have cited a specific published work • Allows you to search the cited references (bibliography) of an article of interest • Snowballing?!
- Significance of cited reference searching • Finding current research based on earlier research • Finding how many times and where a publication is cited • Identifying who is referencing a paper • How is a research topic being used to support other research • Impact of literature on other research in the field • Keeping track of your own research • Used for tenure
- Significance of cited reference searching • Allows you to navigate forward and backward in time, discovering relationships between published works – Find new, unknown information based on older, known information – Find relevant articles in areas where there is not a large amount of literature • Find “hidden connections” between research papers • Trace the historical path of a research idea or discovery Source: ISI Thomson.
