Description: Tour the fascinating repository of rare books, medical artifacts, and archival materials at Oregon’s largest academic health center, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). Meet OHSU Historical Collections & Archives staff at the Portland Aerial Tram lower terminal on Portland’s South Waterfront, and enjoy a beautiful, panoramic city view on a free tram ride. Once on OHSU’s main Marquam Hill campus, the tour will include our main library, our central exhibit space, and our research room in the historic Old Library building, featuring a pop-up display of highlights from our collections. The tour ends in a return trip on the aerial tram. Enjoy lunch or happy hour independently at nearby food trucks along the South Waterfront campus.
