the new conditions of the Harvard Medical School promise to be as nearly ideal as the forethought of man can plan

or so it says in this 1905 article from Popular Science now available to all through the Popular Science archive viewer (courtesy of Google). Worth reading also for many wonderful quotes including "A medical student so trained [ in regularly reading selected up-to-date publications] in the use of medical literature can hardly be content to depend on antiquated text-book knowledge in his practise in after years." Amen. But do our students currently know how to (and have the culture) get up to date genetic and genomic relevant knowledge from the web? Perhaps our libraries can continue to lead in this regard.
