COMMUNITY

INNOVATION
No bleeding required: anemia detection via smartphone

TEACHING
Punk is alive and well, thanks to Emory class and Rose archives
The Rose Library's punk collection inspired instructor Joseph Fritsch to offer a "Punk's Not Dead" expository writing class this semester, giving students an opportunity to enhance their writing while learning about punk's history and culture.
