Research and Publication at Himmelfarb
Himmelfarb’s health sciences librarians all contribute actively to their profession through conducting research, supporting grant applications, participating in research collaborations, publishing in peer-reviewed literature, and presenting at professional conferences. Most hold faculty status in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences for their teaching contributions.
The past year was particularly busy for our librarians. Here are some of the highlights of research and publication achievements (librarian’s names are bolded):
