Requests for items held at the Hirsh Health Sciences Library are now filled free of charge for members of the Tufts community!

And, students, this does not count against your 20 free interlibrary loan requests through ILLiad per year.

We recognize that there may be many reasons you can’t come into the library to grab that article or book chapter you need.  Therefore, we are pleased to announce that we will now scan articles and book chapters found in the Hirsh Health Sciences Library, turn them into pdfs, and send them to you…for FREE!

Just submit an ILLiad request for the item in question and we will deliver it to you through your ILLiad account.  For more information, please review our ILLiad Fee Policy.  Questions?  Email hhsl-docdel@tufts.edu.

Say it ain’t so! Becky Philio, our Library Reference Assistant, will be leaving us this Friday, August 21st to enroll full-time in the bookbinding program at the North Bennet Street School. For the past two years, Becky has been a friendly face at the Library Service Desk, our staff photographer, and an active member of our PR Committee. Becky is also responsible for all of our library videos. Her ability to direct a motley crew of skeletons and puppets is unmatched. She made one last video for us, which will be posted on Thursday–stay tuned!

We wish her all the best as she embarks upon the next phase of her career. She’ll be greatly missed, but we know she’s going on to do great things!

Are you threatened by a thesis deadline? Panicking about your personal statement? Dreading your dissertation? Preoccupied by papers, posters, and proposals?

Fear not! Health Sciences Writing Consultants will resume this Sunday, 8/2.

They’re offering the same great help with all your writing woes, but with a few logistical changes:

  • All sessions will be held in Sackler 509, which is right by the small computer lab on the 5th floor.
  • For the month of August, Sunday appointments will be held from 3pm to 6pm. The usual hours of 2pm to 5pm will resume on 9/13.
  • Weekday sessions will be held from 4pm to 7pm on Thursdays, instead of Wednesdays.

You can visit bit.ly/writingconsultants to learn more or to book an appointment.

We’d like to welcome all of the new medical interns to the Tufts Medical Community!  The library is here as a resource for you.

We have books and journals that you can check out as well as e-resources which you can retrieve using your Tufts username and password.

If you have any questions or need research help please feel free to stop by the 4th floor service desk in the Sackler building or contact us here.

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

Congratulations to all of our 2015 graduates!
