Please welcome our new summer intern, June Thammasnong.  Originally from California, she has recently graduated from the Simmons MLIS program and will be helping us with circulation, reference, and teaching.  Her favorite thing about being a librarian is connecting people with information resources as well as making connections with people themselves.  Outside of work she likes to hunt for ice cream by bicycle and travel whenever she gets a chance.  Her last big adventure was in New Zealand but lately she’s been discovering the US.  Please give her a warm welcome when you see her around the library.

Please join us in welcoming our new head of Research and Instruction, Becky Morin.  She comes to us from the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco where she was head librarian.  A Salem native, she is very excited to be back in Massachusetts and is thrilled to be back home with her beloved Boston Bruins!  When not at work she enjoys distance running, cycling, cooking, and hanging out with her three misfit rescue dogs.  If you see her around the library please feel free to say hello.

Old Housing in Mound Bayou Demonstration of an Interesting Case by Dr. Siegfried Thannhauser

We are pleased to announce the creation of two research guides that highlight some of our archival materials.  Funded by an Express Library Digitization Award from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine New England Region, they contain images and links to full-text articles from the library’s collection of materials regarding Tufts’ role in the community-health- center movement and the Jewish physicians who joined the Tufts faculty as a result of the “German Brain Drain” in World War II.  We encourage you to visit these guides and experience the rich history of Tufts University School of Medicine!

Boston to Mound Bayou: Columbia Point & Delta Health Center
With its establishment of the Columbia Point Health Center (Boston, MA) and Delta Health Center, Inc. (Mound Bayou, MS), Tufts helped launch the community-health-center movement.  This guide features background information about the community-health-center movement as well as materials related to the pioneering work of TUSM faculty members H. Jack Geiger and Count Gibson.

Excellence in Exile: German Emigré Physicians at TUSM
The materials in this guide pertain to the following TUSM faculty members: Alice Ettinger, Joseph Igershiemer, Gerhard Schmidt, and Siegfried Thannhauser.
