Medical students visit the Alumni Association office to check out books from the Lending Library or pick up
their white coats.
The Alumni Association works with The Student Fund to provide a variety of resources for students of the School of Medicine. One of the most practical resources is the Barbara J. Orr Lending Library. Founded in 2002 by Barbara J. Orr ’70 and the Student Affairs Council, the Lending Library provides medical school textbooks and review books for medical students to check out. There are also free books available for students to take. Most of the books in the library are donated by alumni and recent graduates.
A recent donation from Dr. Orr has made it possible for the Association to purchase the most popular books for clerkships in surgery, internal medicine, pediatrics, and psychiatry. Students will be able to check out these books for the 10-week duration of their clerkship. This year, donations to The Student Fund have also made it possible to give each third-year medical student a white coat with their name embroidered on it for them to wear as they begin their clerkships.
One student said the Alumni Association has been “a constant treasure trove of resources, from money to textbooks to photographs.” Through generous donations, the Association can continue to support our future alumni.
The Student Fund is a branch of the Student Affairs Council and part of the Alumni Association, LLUSM. Its activities are financed by your contributions and greatly appreciated by LLU medical students.
