I take this opportunity to commend Ms. Mellanye Lackey, the amazing Reference Librarian in the HSL*. Her influence has not only affected America but reaches even to Africa, Uganda in particular. Her visit to the Infectious Diseases Institute in Uganda (IDI) was a blessing since she explored with us the various ways through which we can use social networks to reach the community and improve on our digital library services.
A big applause to you for your generous heart . May God bless you.

* HSL Note: Mellanye is in Uganda in her capacity as the director of the HSL’s Global Initiative (she is also the HSL’s liaison for the Scho0l of Public Health). While there, she is seeing how the HSL can better serve UNC-CH faculty and students as they teach, learn, research and serve others throughout the world.
