Himmelfarb Headlines - February / March 2018

Director's Desk

Director's Desk, Anne LintonI am pleased to announce the publication of Himmelfarb’s Annual Report. Please take a minute to review our many accomplishments over the last year. It was a year of milestones with growth in journal usage, educational programming, and ebook acquisitions. A hallmark of Himmelfarb’s success has been a focus on patrons and their information and educational needs.

To maintain that focus, we need your feedback!  Please e-mail us at himmelfarb@gwu.edu, stop by my office and say hi! (1st floor Himmelfarb), or click on the Suggest a Purchase button on our web page to inquire about resources we don’t own.  We are constantly reviewing our collection in terms of utilization, cost per use, subject areas covered, resources requested via interlibrary loan, and research and educational mission.

Himmelfarb Library also conducts a bi-annual survey of faculty every other spring semester to gather feedback on the library's journal collections. Faculty look for this survey in your inbox soon and please take the time to help us fine-tune our collection to meet your needs! For those faculty and students who are off-campus, you can participate in the good things happening at Himmelfarb by joining a webinar or completing a tutorial, exploring our online resources, reviewing our guide to using the library from a distance, or booking a Webex consultation with a librarian! Again your input is valuable.

So I will close by saying that I and the Himmelfarb librarians look forward to hearing from you-faculty, students, residents, and staff-- in the upcoming months.
