Making Lives Better

Ramirez Library Rocks!

From an MD, JD who studied in the Ramirez Library at the RAHC in Harlingen:
This facility rocks! I just found out that I passed the Texas Bar Exam. I couldn’t have done [sic] it’s a quiet place to study long hours. Also, Daniel is a credit to your institution – he’s so helpful. Thanks!

Great Medical Yearbook Site

The library’s new Medical Yearbook site looks great, Andrea. You guys have done a great job on this.

What do the library and librarians mean to me?

They mean alot.  They tell us how to get stuff around library and they are nice about it.  :)

Staff, Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science


I’ve used the library study rooms often and it’s great. I’ve also asked the librarians for assistance when searching for articles on databases.  They’ve always been a great help.

A wonderful resource!

The library has opened a whole new world for me relative to all the different aspects of the services they provide. No longer do I believe that libraries are just for accessing books and journals. The expertise available in our library and the personnel regarding databases, searches and events is outstanding. I have enjoyed their efforts to bring the campus together in their special events. A wonderful resource!

Librarians are good people!

In my current job, I could not accomplish what I have to do without the library and the medical librarians.  The librarians are friendly, know how to help bewildered users, and are able to provide solutions to a variety of questions.  Librarians are good people!

Going the Extra Mile!

I wanted to take a moment to recognize one of your employees at the Laredo Regional Campus Library. Ms. Jessica B. Ramirez is a great asset to the library. She is very courteous, friendly and is willing to go the extra mile for students and staff who are seeking resources. I recently visited the library as a community member and was intrigued with the manner in which she spoke to others and how well she expressed herself about the wonderful services the library offers. I commend your department for having such a fine employee!

Thanks for MedlinePlus demonstration!

Here’s a comment posted to Twitter this morning:

“@uthsclib Thanks for the MedlinePlus demonstration at the 2011 San Antonio CHW/Promotor(a) Summit! Great information for everyone!”

We’re always happy to have a chance to demonstrate great health information sources like MedlinePlus, as our librarians Linda Levy and Peg Seger did at the Community Health Worker/Promotor(a) Summit at CHRISTUS Santa Rosa earlier this month.

Great Customer Service

One of the clinical faculty stopped by to chat with the Executive Director.  He complimented the library staff on their positive customer service attitude.  He particularly wanted to let her know that Albert Ramirez had helped him fairly recently.  The doctor thought he had left an important notebook in the library and Albert helped to search for it, although the notebook was not in the library.  Turns out he had left it in the messy trunk of his car.

Loving the library’s food & drink policy

Here’s a comment posted to Twitter yesterday by a visitor at our Dolph Briscoe Jr Library:

“studying at UTHSCSA’s DBJL! love that people eat here and no one cares!”

We love for your library to be a comfortable place — that’s why we allow food and drink.  Our policy is explained here.

And by the way, you can follow us on Twitter — we’re @uthsclib!
