After completing our grad school HSL scavenger hunt, we came across a lot of great resources, from the E-journal and catalog search, as well as the Ask Us button, to the compact shelving on the ground floor (which we found to be really cool and a great way to store information). We feel confident that the HSL will be there to help us in our endeavors throughout our graduate studies and look forward to taking advantage of all the resources it has to offer!

I really appreciate how user friendly the website is! The “Ask” option is extremely helpful and the layout of the library itself is really great! Its awesome that there are different studying environments on each floor of the HSL.

“I’d like to offer recognition to Mary [White, Global Public Health Librarian] in appreciation for her excellent support for our HPM [Health Policy & Management] Lit Reviews course. In addition to her enthusiastic and clear lecture style, she was incredibly responsive to my (and others) requests for support. She provided quick and helpful input on topics ranging from review of an overall research concept to more detailed questions about the quirks of different search engines. It is great to have her as such a knowledgeable and cheerful part of the UNC research support community!”

We love how the HSL has accessible online databases to research topics without having to come to the library. We also appreciate that the HSL has resources that can gather information for me that may be behind a paywall so I don’t have to make extra purchases during my research. Some other helpful features which we appreciate are the ability to renew books online without coming into the library and the ability to chat with a librarian online for assistance.

I love this library for the people on staff! I appreciate the kind and efficient assistance delivered to me my first time in the door by Kaylin and Annie! Thank you very much for your assistance.

HSL Feedback & Food!
Something that we particularly LOVE is the “Ask a Librarian” chat feature. When we had a few general questions about booking rooms, which floors are best to study on, which floors are the “quiet” floors, and the Librarian were beyond helpful. Not only did they give me the answers but they were so descriptive and went above and beyond. It is nice to know that they are available to talk, even while we are at home and have questions.
We also like the atmosphere of the HSL. Since our building is so close to the HSL, it’s easy to just get a change of scenery and it’s great to have those resources so close. It’s also very efficient that we are able to connect to the printer on our laptops. It saves so much time when you do work on your laptop and don’t want to worry about transferring your work to a different computer. Thanks HSL!
