The Green Bean Newsletter Available

The University of Kentucky Libraries staff newsletter, The Green Bean (1972-2000, scattered), is now on ExploreUK. This publication is a precursor to Off the Shelf. From 1992-1993 it was titled the Green Screen. These issues are especially fun because they are printed by our old friend the dot matrix printer.

Frontier Nursing Service Quarterly Bulletins Now On ExploreUK

We're pleased to announce the quarterly bulletins from the Frontier Nursing Service records have been digitized and are now available on ExploreUK.

Mary Breckinridge founded the Frontier Nursing Service (FNS), originally known as the Kentucky Committee for Mothers and Babies, in rural Leslie County, Kentucky, in 1925. To that mountain area, Breckinridge brought a background and professional training that enabled her to establish and maintain a unique health care organization.

You can see other Appalachian-related collections on the new Online Appalachian Resources page.
