Welcome Back!

HSL Updates

September 2019, Vol. 1

On behalf of the faculty, staff and students of the Donald C. Harrison Health Sciences Library (HSL), – welcome back for the 2019-2020 school year.  I would like to share with you some library updates and links that you can easily access for information as it relates to classes being offered in the HSL, hours of operation, new technology, upcoming lectures and collaborative spaces for study and research.

HSL upgrades:

  • Over the summer, the electrical engineers were able to finalize the upgrades of lights on the R, E and G levels of the library
  • New power outlets were installed on the R-Level of the library.
  • At the request of HSGA representatives from last year, the HSL purchased four (4) new ergonomic stand-up tables that are located in the Computer Lab.
  • In mid-September the HSL Circulation Desk students will begin offering scheduled 20-minute walking tours of the HSL Library and Winkler Center.  The tour will include, but is not limited to information on equipment that can be checked out, HSL IT Help Desk services, how to navigate the Computer Lab and information on the HSL’s Electronic Classroom.  Look for more information about the tours in October.

HSL Updates will be posted on a monthly basis to share the HSL Workshop calendar and any other information related to things happening in the HSL.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly.  As always, we are happy to welcome you into the HSL.

Clermont College Welcome

One of my favorite times each new school year is the first hour of the first day. As I sit at the welcome table in the Peters-Jones building at Clermont College I’m eager to greet the new and returning students. The energy I feel from their excitement regenerates me for the possibilities of the new semester.  And of course I’m happy to direct them to the Clermont College Library.good things

I just know good things are going to happen fall semester. Best wishes to all of Clermont’s students as they begin this new journey.

Fall Welcome


The library staff greeted new students during the Fall Welcome on Clermont’s Campus. We met many students eager to start the new semester. Our student assistant, Rachel, shared information about the library, specifically highlighting the help a student receives with research, resources, and textbooks on reserve. We’re excited to meet new students and help them with all their research needs.
