The Sirridge Office of Medical Humanities took on a greater presence on Dec. 11, 1998, when a new conference and library room was opened and dedicated on the fourth floor of the School of Medicine.
The area houses numerous books and magazines that can be read in the room or checked out. Tables and chairs are available that can be arranged into a small classroom or lecture setting. There is also a vast array of audio-visual equipment for meetings and presentations including a video/data projector, a computer, a monitor and a podium with a public address system.
The room can be reserved for classes, lectures or other meetings by contacting emailing med.umkc.edu/RoomReservations. It can also be used as a quiet area for students to study or simply to browse through the available books and magazines.
Students, faculty and staff can visit the room from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. throughout the week.
