Henry Stewart Talks

  • A general view of e-resources and the changes taking place today
  • A detailed tour of the website, including how to use special features, functions, and services provided
  • The possibilities that exist for e-learning, using the talks in class, and embedding them in curriculum
  • How to easily integrate the talks in your virtual learning space

While the  presentation will be geared more towards faculty and staff use, students are welcome to attend. Please RSVP by June 16.

We hope to see you there! But if you can’t make it, be sure to explore the collection!

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.

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!
