Growing into a Better Researcher and Scholar

I love the design of the library; the way in which everything is structured on all floors in a similar manner makes finding my way around a lot easier. The variety of resources available is certainly something that excites me and I look forward to growing into a better researcher and scholar.

I Can Get So Much Work Done

I love the HSL! I love having a dedicated place that I can go and study. I really like the fourth floor; it is so quiet and I can get so much work done there. I think that I will use this library a lot over the coming two years. The staff at the main desk seems friendly and helpful, too.

Not Just Academic Help: A Guide and Helping Hand

HSL turned out to be not just a valuable tool in terms of academia for me, but also a guide and a helping hand in my initial days of settling in on campus. The staff always provided the help I was looking for, even when I wasn’t issued a One Card on my first day. Not only was I making use of the internet and computers here, but I also found all the Chapel Hill Transit bus route brochures here — and I still make use of them! I am pretty sure with all the resourses available, I will be a regular visitor of HSL over my next 3 years here at UNC. Great job everyone at HSL!

Scavenger Hunt a Success

Barbara [Renner],

I would like to thank you, on behalf of our faculty and incoming students, for your invaluable support and assistance with orientation week.  By all reports the material you shared was extremely valuable.  I would also like to express my appreciation to Liza Cahoon and staff for making the first ‘HSL scavenger hunt’ a big success.  Many thanks!

Studying Between Classes

Our first year SLP group loves the HSL for many reasons. It is great to have a facility near our classrooms where we can study — somewhere quiet between classes! The HSL study rooms are a great place for us to congregate in small groups while studying or working on a project. It is also fun/helpful to be able to check out whiteboard materials at the User Services desk in order to enhance our learning experience. Plus, the HSL staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to help!

HSL – Nothing Like I Expected

The Health Sciences Library was nothing like I expected it to be. I thought it would be a very quiet and serious place I would only use when forced to by my professors. When I walked in, I could tell it was nothing like that! I loved that the library had a cafe and comfortable places to sit and study. It wasn’t quiet and restrictive. I will definitely be using the HSL as a relaxed place to study and meet up with other classmates for group projects while I am in grad school. Thanks for giving us such a great place to use!

Expert Resource at Our Fingertips

Our group really liked the fact that it is nice that there is a library specifically for our field and allied health. We also enjoyed the comfortable atmosphere and coffee in the building. We also enjoyed the ask a librarian function because it is a big comfort to know there is an expert resource at our fingertips whenever we need it.

Lots of books

When asked what they discovered about HSL on a scavenger hunt, students said: “Coffee! And lots of books on our topic. And scanners!”
