Hirsh Health Sciences Library is excited to announce that we will go live with our new website on Sunday, December 20th. The old website will no longer be accessible at this point. We spent the past year revamping our branding, designing, and developing the site.

Here are some features we’re excited about :

GreenOfficeCertificate

We’re excited to announce that the Hirsh Library has achieved Gold Level in the Office of Sustainability’s Green Office Certification Program! The Program supports, promotes, and recognizes Tufts offices that are engaging in sustainable practices. We received our plaque at a special awards ceremony with President Monaco on January 8th in recognition for  completing the certification as part of a 15-week challenge that ran from August through November.

Sustainability is important to us at Hirsh–in fact, we started off the challenge with a Bronze level qualification–and we are pleased to be continually improving our practices.

Eileen

After 15 years of providing excellent service to the Tufts health sciences campus, we bid a fond farewell to Eileen Moyer, who retired earlier this month.

As an Information Services Librarian, Eileen provided invaluable research assistance and instruction to users on the Boston campus.  Eileen helped design the current HHSL web site and was deeply committed to helping students become savvy users of information technology.

In addition to her work at HHSL, Eileen advocates for the humane treatment of greyhound race dogs and serves as volunteer for Greyhound Friends.

Eileen, we wish you a fabulous retirement! Thank you!
