Here is the link to the cover of the September issue of the American Journal of Human Genetics with the drawing of Dr. Barbara Bowman that was based on the picture you found in the University Archives.  Thank you so much for your diligence in finding the picture.  Everyone else had given up, but you found the best image for the drawing.

Stellar Librarian

I have had the pleasure of working with Christine Gaspard over the past few years. I believe she was referred when I sent in a request for “askalibrarian”. She has been abundantly helpful with many studies and projects – helping me with researching articles, searching MESH terms, etc. She is thorough and reliable. Not only is she always cordial and prepared, but she always has a positive attitude. Her knowledge and assistance are truly valuable.

Thank you for your time.

An informative webinar

 

Comment sent to Andrea Schorr, Cataloging and Acquisitions Librarian:  Your presentation, “Strategic Planning for Digitizing Success” which was part of an Amigos online conference, was very, very informative.

Thank you Chris and Katie

Thank-you

This creative message was a response from a group of students who attended a poster preparation workshop run by Chris Gaspard, Head of Access Services and Interlibrary Loan, and Katie Prentice, Head of Education and Information Services. The students presented their posters at a Community Service Learning Conference on April 3, 2014.  Librarians offer a short class on Creating and Presenting Effective Poster Sessions which can be requested for presentation to classes or in other venues.  For more information, contact Jonquil Feldman, Director of Briscoe Library and Outreach Services, feldman@uthscsa.edu

RAHC Library: Awesome

I was one of the full-time RAHC MS3′s last year. I used the library a ton and I really appreciated the awesome services y’all provided!  … I absolutely loved my time at the RAHC (and the RAHC library staff) and look forward to being back.

Survey Says….

In Spring of 2013, librarians surveyed Health Science Center students and faculty about their access to information, services, staff and study space. We received many compliments about the staff, some of which are included here.

 

The library staff is exceptional!

 

Librarians and library staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

 

“If only I’d had your lecture before I spent multiple days and hours struggling to make PUBMED work with my homework assignments.  Your examples and explanations really hit home.”

 

My experience with library staff is that they are always courteous and helpful; they make genuine attempts to help answer questions that are difficult to answer/resolve.

 

When I call the librarian for help, they are always extremely helpful in helping me find what I need. I am very impressed with the capabilities of the librarians and their ability to help me when I need it.

 

Katie Prentice and Chris Gaspard have been invaluable resources for me when teaching the Research Class and helping students put together their CSL Posters
