First year medical students and Fletcher Allen residents may have arrived on campus weeks ago but there is something about September and the official beginning of the academic year at UVM that enlivens the Library atmosphere and increases our sense of possibilities.
The Library is filling up with serious students and faculty. A study of who visited the Library last spring showed that Dana patrons include medical school students, nursing and health sciences majors, graduate and undergraduate students in the sciences, faculty, and clinicians. All are rubbing elbows, sharing space, collaborating, and working with librarians and staff to find what they need. There is so much you can do and use at the Library in person or from your home, lab, classroom or clinic.
In this Newsletter issue we highlight some of our services to help you succeed in your classes, research, teaching and practice. Do take advantage of all the Library has to offer whether you study, ask questions or check out a book at Dana, or find the answers in over 5000 electronic journals and databases. Welcome.
