Please join us in welcoming our newest Research and Instruction Librarian, Laura Pavlech!  Laura comes to us from Brown University where she was the Biomedical and Life Sciences Librarian.  While pursuing her degree in library science, she worked at the University of North Carolina Health Sciences Library in Chapel Hill.  She is already familiar with Tufts as she is a 2008 graduate of the Vet School!  Laura will be the primary outreach liaison to the Sackler School.  Please say hello if you see her around the library!

 

Laura

We hope you all have a great unofficial kick off to the summer this holiday weekend!  The service desk will have limited hours on Monday, May 25th  from 12pm-7pm.  Enjoy your weekend!

We’d like to give a shout out to the Sackler School for National Bunsen Burner Day.  Today we commemorate the birth of the German chemist Robert Wilhelm Eberhard Bunsen, born in 1811.

A Bunsen burner is a long, hollow tube and when combining gas and air, a hot flame is produced.

Take a moment to appreciate this device and its value in science!

The first of our extended hours for 2015 will be this weekend, March 28th-29th, and the Hirsh Library Service Desk will be open 10 am to 10 pm.   Our building will be open a bit later on Saturday. Swipe access will end as usual at 11PM, but you may remain in the library until 2AM!  So if you find yourself lost in study you won’t have to leave by midnight.  Good luck with your exams!
