Dr. Sheldon Peck: HSL “a world-class, full-service scholarly health sciences library”

Dr.  Peck spoke at HSL on the “The Modern Value of Early Writing in Medicine and Dentistry” on November 13, 2012. The presentation was co-sponsored by the UNC Health Sciences Library and the Bullitt History of Medicine Club.

The following is an excerpt from his talk. For the entire presentation see this playlist on the HSL YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/hslunc).

Drs. Leena and Sheldon Peck recently donated a preeminent collection of dentistry books to the Health Sciences Library. See the story here from the HSL news blog ( hsl.lib.unc.edu/hslnews ).

…the HSL is an example of just how spoiled we are

As an undergrad student, I never ventured to this side of campus. However, as a current dental student, I have found the HSL to be my primary location for studying! I love the fact that many of the group study rooms are equipped with large screens and boards. I also love the comfortable couches in the open area- many good dreams have come from them! Overall, I am grateful for the HSL; the great staff, the resourceful rooms and the studying space! I think  that we as students are spoiled at UNC, and the HSL is an example of just how spoiled we are.

Be one of the first to share your story, long or short, about why you love the HSL. Maybe you’ve had an interaction with a librarian that helped you with a paper or research.  Maybe you want to share your favorite place to study (or sleep) in the library. Perhaps you and your classmates used our study rooms to collaborate  on a successful project. Or maybe you used our conference rooms for an important meeting or class. Whatever it is, we want to hear from you – faculty, students, staff, alumni, and anyone else who uses HSL’s resources or services.  So go on…spread the love! 🙂
