|Dr. Adrian Kantrowitz: Heart Transplant Images
Wayne State University
A collection of slides from Dr. Adrian Kantrowitz, who, in addition to
performing the first U.S. heart transplant, is responsible for
several contributions including the plastic heart valve in 1954, the
heart-lung machine in 1958, the internal pacemaker in 1961, and the
auxiliary left ventricle in 1964. Dr. Kantrowitz resided
in Detroit until his death in 2008 at the age of 90.
The original slides from this collection have been donated to the
National Library of Medicine.

What Would It Take?
"The Digital Public Library of America brings together the riches of
America’s libraries, archives, and museums, and makes them freely
available to the world." The DPLA aims to be:
1. A portal that delivers students, teachers, scholars, and the public to incredible resources, wherever they may be in America.
2. A platform that enables new and transformative uses of our digitized cultural heritage.
3. An advocate for a strong public option in the twenty-first century.
"DPLA Content Hubs
are large digital libraries, museums, archives, or repositories that
maintain a one-to-one relationship with the DPLA. Content Hubs,
as a general rule, provide more than 250,000 unique metadata records
that resolve to digital objects (online texts, photographs, manuscript
material, art work, etc.) to the DPLA, and commit to maintaining and
editing those records as needed."

able to participate in the online workshop "AACR2...Meet RDA." The
course description is as follows from the MCLS website: "Cataloging
with RDA (Resource Description & Access) is similar to
cataloging with AACR2...and then again it's not! In this
key differences between AACR2 and RDA will be identified and shown
through examples. Some of the challenges and implications of these
differences will be discussed, and possible solutions suggested."
webinar normally costs $59 for MCLS members, but DALNET members will
receive a special negotiated price of $50. The webinar will be available
both in the Purdy Kresge Auditorium at Wayne State University and
remotely at your own computer. Remote access, however, is
to 15 participants.
