Director’s Reflections…Welcome Back, New and Returning Students and Faculty!

Barbara EpsteinWe’re ready to begin a new school year! We invite you to explore HSLS resources and services described in this Update newsletter and on our Web pages. Even if you think you know everything about us, I guarantee that you’ll learn something new!

Renovation of Falk Library’s upper floor is finally completed. We’re freshly painted and re-carpeted, with a technology help desk, rolling whiteboards and four new group study rooms. There’s also a self-service counter for charging your laptops and iPads.

In September, don’t forget to visit our traveling exhibit from the National Library of Medicine, titled Life and Limb: The Toll of the American Civil War.

Have you got an iPhone, iPad or Android? Then check out links to mobile access to digital resources on our Mobile Apps Web page.

Each school has a designated liaison librarian—have you met yours? You can find their names and contact information by directing your browser to the Reference Services/Liaisons Web page. Stop by, call, or e-mail to introduce yourself!

Make a note to yourself to attend a regularly scheduled class, or try one of our new FlashClasses this year. We’re looking forward to “seeing” you online or in-person.
