“I love the organization of the Health Sciences Library website. I have easily been able to access our program textbooks as well as other online resources [Physician Assistant resources guide created by the HSL Liaison to the Allied Health Sciences, Barbara Renner]. I also enjoy studying in the HSL on my breaks. It is quiet and comfortable… Thank you both for being so committed to getting us quality resources!”

We love the Health Sciences Library because it has everything that we need in order to be successful in graduate school! The resources available to us are incredible. We are excited to have the HSL and its friendly staff with us throughout our experience here at UNC.

The HSL is quickly teaching me the superpowers possessed by librarians. As a TA for a class, I was asked to make sure all the links in the professor’s syllabus from last year were still active. They weren’t, and one that seemed critical lead to a fee-based site. I thought maybe the library would be willing to subscribe, as it was autism-linked and seemed widely applicable. Barbara Renner is my contact person and encouraged me to send her details so that she could make it happen. Dee Stuckey was the expert Barbara teamed up with. Dee looked into the fee-based site much more deeply, watching 8+ minutes of a video I’d neglected and found a FREE link to the info I wanted. Then she wrote with careful detail so that I could go straight to the link. I passed it on to the professor and the students in the class. We were all thrilled to have access to the information and grateful to Dee and Barbara for their investigative work. They saved us time and money! Thank you HSL librarians!
OT students LOVE the HSL because of its abundant resources, knowledgeable and helpful staff, and cozy atmosphere. The “Ask Us” feature is one of the most intuitive and useful aspects of the HSL that sets it apart from other libraries on campus. There’s nothing better than knowing that the library has your back when you are in full-on panic mode trying to find an obscure article. At the end of the day, whether you need to study or just take a break in the relaxation room on the 4th floor, HSL is a safe haven for students. Much Love,

Everyone in the HSL library was so friendly and helpful! As future Occupational Therapists, finding relevant and up to date resources from both a medical and social perspective is very important to us. After attending an HSL orientation session and completing the scavenger hunt, we know that the Health Sciences Library has everything that we’ll need during our time here at UNC!

The Ask Us tool on HSL is very useful for when I don’t know how to find something!

Coming from a program without a Speech Language Pathology Program, having SLP resources let alone a whole library of health science research is both shocking and very exciting for me. I’m so excited to start looking through the guides and journal articles available and tailored for speech pathology students. My group members in crazy cats are equally as excited!

My roommates and I love the HSL because it provides us with a ton of resources right next door to our school!
