Making Lives Better

Ron Mesa is a great employee

I just wanted to mention that Ron Mesa is a great employee who turned out to be a wonderful friend.  I was employed in the Eye Clinic at University Health Center-Downtown for 15 years and he was always very helpful whenever I used the library services.  I have since retired but I know he will be missed by many at UHCD!

Compliments to Ramirez Library staff

We would like to thank Greysi Reyna, Kathy Carter and Monica Tovar for attending or June 22nd Community Service Learning Awards luncheon honoring our third-year medical students at the Regional Academic Health Center who participated in CSL projects.

The students were truly encouraged with your presence and participation and in this event.

We appreciate your contribution of time and expertise. The event would not have been possible without your continued support.

Closing of Downtown Library

Note sent to Linda Levy, Assistant Director for Branch Libraries and Ron Mesa, Library Clerical Assistant, Senior, who provided services at the Downtown Library until it closed its doors in July 2011.

The two of you have made the Library much bigger than just a place with books and I will really miss you guys.  That space will never be the same.

Great resource for my research

I want to mention that I have found the HSC Library to be a great resource for my research.  The electronic journal collection is phenomenal.

Thanks, Pennie!

I’ve really enjoyed having my work on exhibit in the Briscoe Library and have especially enjoyed working with Pennie Borchers throughout the exhibit and during my talk on the healing effects of color. She’s been a delight to work with and immensely helpful on so many levels!

Compliments to Briscoe Library staff

Good afternoon,

I just wanted to take a few minutes to compliment the staff. On every occasion I have submitted a question to “AskaLibrarian,” I have received prompt, detailed, and helpful responses. I have not needed to send multiple emails because of insufficient or difficult to understand information or instructions. Too often, we as consumers are quick to complain and slow to compliment, so I just wanted to let you know I appreciate the professionalism your staff shows and I am sure other staff feel likewise.

Thank you.

Thanks to Eric for a great class

I wanted to take a moment to tell you what a great job Eric did on his presentation on Copyright and Fair Use to the PAS faculty. Eric did a wonderful job in managing the seemingly hundreds of questions that came his way! The faculty had very positive things to say. They agreed that this was a useful session and that they learned a lot, both about copyright and fair use, and what the library has to offer in the way of research tools.

Eric, thank you so much for your great work today. I really appreciated it and I know the faculty did too!

Compliments to Chris

I want to thank Chris Gaspard for the terrific presentation.  The students were very grateful and enjoyed being able to link the examples of sorting through types of studies to the scenarios you offered them.  It gave them an excellent application toward their knowledge in seeking out the evidence.  I am so appreciative and will definitely request that we do this again for my future classes.
