Making Lives Better

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

 

 

I “love” the library

I “love” the library and can’t begin to tell you how helpful everyone is at all times.

Message to Chris Gaspard

Head of Access Services and Interlibrary Loan

 

I wanted to personally thank you for your exemplary presentation to Dr. Rugh’s class this past Monday.  Without a doubt, your contributions made a huge impact on the professional development of the students in the class.  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.  Thank you very much for your devotion to quality in education!

 

All the best,

COL Ann Sue von Gonten

Chief of Staff, United States Army Dental Command

Thanks!

To:  Librarians and library associates

 

Thank you for making the Briscoe Library run as smooth as possible.  I apologize that as students we are always in a hurry and often forget to show our appreciation and getting to know y’all.  Keep up the amazing work!

 

Sincerely,

A grateful student

Thanks!
