Author! Author! is an annual event held by the Library since 1979. It takes place early in April, during National Library Week, and it focuses on celebrating the publication endeavors of our Baptist Health South Florida staff. BHSF publications are regularly uploaded to the Scholarly Commons, our institutional repository. During the event the authors receive ribbons, door prizes, they get showcased on the Library Newsletter, attend presentations and enjoy raffles, games, and networking.  The event transitioned to the online environment during the pandemic.

Please join us in exploring the pictorial history of the Author! Author! event and past Library Newsletters.

Instead the library would help users get their own computers hooked up using "gateways," and telephone lines. This year the estate of Dr. Marvin "Bud" Jaffee gifted a set of "Classics in Medicine" which includes 58 titles from landmark medical publications.Explore articles published by Baptist authors in 1994 at Scholarly Commons.Library Newsletters are only available via local IP address or BHSF login.
