Director's Note

If you are reading this newsletter, you will obviously notice our new format. It became necessary to transition to an ADA-compliant format, better meeting the needs of all our readers. The newsletter will continue on a quarterly publication cycle as in the past. Let us know what you think. We welcome your feedback.

Speaking of change, this is my farewell column. I will be retiring and transitioning out of my role as Associate Dean and Director of the Harrell Health Sciences Library over the next several months. University Libraries and the College of Medicine have initiated a search for my replacement. I have had the opportunity to build a world-class 21st century library, work with a talented and dedicated faculty and staff, and have a real and positive impact on the Penn State College of Medicine and Penn State. It’s certainly hard to say goodbye but I am also excited about the new chapter in my life.

I hope in the next quarterly newsletter the new Associate Dean and Director will have the opportunity to introduce themself, opening an exciting new chapter for the Harrell HSL story.

Goodbye and good luck!
