Linda Levy, Assistant Director for Branch Library and Database Services, retired on December 31 following 20 years of service to the Health Science Center. Linda began working at the UT Health Science Center Library in 1991 as an Information Services Librarian. She managed the library’s literature search services, including instruction in effective literature search techniques. In 1998 she began managing the branch library at the Robert B. Green Campus, and in 2007 she became responsible for supervising the new branch library at the Laredo Regional Campus. Linda was active in library outreach services in Laredo and San Antonio including managing several successful outreach grants. Linda also was a member of several campus committees including the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, the Institutional Review Board, the School of Nursing Committee on Graduate Studies (COGS), and the Program Committee of the annual Summer Institute on Evidence-Based Practice. In 2010, Linda was named to the Health Science Center’s Academy of Master Teachers. She has served on several committees for the Medical Library Association and the South Central Chapter of the Medical Library Association and has presented at numerous professional meetings. She is an emeritus member of the Academy of Health Information Professionals (AHIP).
Linda plans to spend her retirement as an active volunteer for several organizations in San Antonio, and she plans to continue to enjoy her children (and hopefully grandchildren) in Chicago. We wish Linda the best as she embarks on her well-deserved retirement and we express our gratitude for her many years of dedication to Health Science Center faculty, students and staff and the profession of librarianship.
Rajia Tobia, Executive Director of Libraries
