New Library Furniture

New Library FurnitureStop by the library and see our new bulletin boards and furniture in the alcove. While your here, feel free to borrow one of the recreational reading books shelved in the alcove. There is no need to check out these titles. Simply return the book when you are finished so someone else will be able to read it. If you are clearing out your bookshelves and have a title or two you’d like to donate, bring them to the library office. To see a list of titles in the recreational reading collection visit our Recreational Reading List.


Sherrill Olsen, Health Sciences Library Manager, Retires

Sherrill Olsen, Health Sciences Library Manger, retired at the beginning of 2014. Joining the Huntington Hospital in 2005, Sherrill was instrumental in bringing research resources to clinicians during a period of transition from print to electronic. During her time at Huntington she facilitated online access to electronic journals and books, both at the hospital and from off-site, on the OvidSP and AccessMedicine platforms and to point-of-care information from UpToDate and Natural Standard among others. Sherrill was also active on the Evidence Based Practice/Nursing Research Council, Patient Education Steering Committee and Continuing Medical Education Committee. Under her direction, in 2011, the library received an Express Outreach Award from the National Network of Medical Libraries to promote teen health in our community. Sherrill’s leadership will be missed!
