August Newsletter

We’re settling into our new space and are excited for the furniture, study carrels and additional computers coming later this month. In the meantime, our print collection is ready and available, including new books for patients in our Health Information Center. One new title to check out is The Harvard Medical School Guide to A Good Night’s Sleep.


You can read more about it and what’s going on in the library in our monthly newsletter.

The Tucker Medical Library is Moving

The construction is underway. As we eagerly await the opening of the new library here are a few details for employees:

  • We will open our doors to patients and employees on or around July 6th.
  • Library staff will not have office space on campus from June 12th until the new library opens. We will be available via email during regular business hours and will be checking voicemail regularly.
  • We will continue to provide expert searches, interlibrary loan and other library services remotely.  You may continue to order articles and books, and we will delver them to your office or email. Keep in mind that ILL requests may take longer than usual to fill.
  • We can provide instruction and other support in your office by appointment.
  • You may direct patients to our Patient Resource Guide until we reopen –

The New York Public Library’s Digital Collections

NYPL digital collections

The New York Public Library’s digital image collection was recently made 180,000 items larger, offering the public unrestricted access to view – and use – images of such varied items as Medieval and Renaissance manuscripts to photographs of Ellis Island immigrants. From sheet music to the political correspondence of some of America’s most important historical figures, these images offer both crisp visual enhancement to scholarly presentations and can even serve as primary sources for historical inquiry. Take a look at history and enhance your next presentation with this invaluable resource!
