What's New at Himmelfarb
Over the winter holidays, most Himmelfarb Library staff moved to new office spaces within the library facility to free Room 103 for occupation by another SMHS department. Most staff in 103 moved to the 105 area behind the information and circulation desks. Reference and instructional services staff are in other offices on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Inquire at the information desk if you have an appointment with a staff member.
Library staff are working on projects that will result in big changes to Himmelfarb Library’s website,the Library Catalog, and Health Information @ Himmelfarb. A team led by Brian McDonald, Web Services Librarian, is redesigning the web page to update it and make it more efficient for those seeking information and services. The new web page will roll out in time for fall 2018 classes.
Himmelfarb is also involved in a project with the Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC) to move to the Library Catalog to the Alma resource management system with other WRLC libraries, including GW’s Gelman Library and Jacob Burns Law Library. Alma will allow for more automation of processes and better integration of electronic and physical collections. As part of this project, a new version of Health Information @ Himmelfarb will integrate searching across all collections and allow users to see what’s available at other GW and WRLC libraries. The standalone Library Catalog will go away. The new system will be rolled out in July 2018. Stay tuned for updates!
