Your Heart is the Size of Your FistMCW Libraries is pleased to announce continuing support of MCW Common Read, a Kern Institute sponsored program providing a foundation for conversations around change, compassion, caring, and character:

  1. An ebook version of Your Heart Is the Size of Your Fist : A Doctor Reflects on Ten Years at a Refugee Clinic is being provided via Ebook Central.

Ebook Central is set up with single sign-on so that you can use your credentials to access library resources off campus to access the ebook and your Ebook Central Bookshelf Account. It isn’t necessary to create an Ebook Central Bookshelf Account with a second set of credentials to remember. Sign into your Bookshelf Account to annotate, highlight, and create bookmarks.

  2. Ten print copies are available for checkout, and you can have the books for up to 4 weeks. See the library catalog record for the loan status of each copy. The books are located on the New Book Display near the entrance to the Todd Wehr Library. If all copies are checked out, we can help you reserve a copy of the book. If you haven’t checked out items from the MCW Libraries, it only takes a few minutes to set up your library account; just remember to bring your MCW, CHW, or Froedtert ID badge.
