The Hippies complete HSL Scavenger Hunt!

We love that the HSL is right beside our classes. It will be convenient during breaks or when we need to print somehting quickly. It is nice that some of our textbooks are accessbile as E-books through the HSL. The guidelines on the HSL website will be useful to consult, especially the writing and citation ones. We will also utilize the poster templates if we have any future presentations. We noticed there is a guideline for Scholarships. It will be convenient to have a list to refer to when it is time to apply. We will probably use the group study rooms frequently, and we will also study in the Friends’ Cafe. We will definitely take advantage of the close supply of caffeine!!

“Nothing But Netter (Atlas)” group finishes HSL Scavenger Hunt!

We are new students to the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at UNC-Chapel Hill and love how accessible and helpful the HSL is regarding research with databases of academic catalogs and journals. Research and evidence based practice are critical components to being successful physical therapists. This research would be infinitely more difficult without the resources given to us by UNC’s HSL!

HSL Bell Tower Toastmasters “opened a whole new world to me”

My name is Leilei Ji, an MBA student at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School. The After Five [Bell Tower Toastmasters Club at the Health Sciences Library] was the  very first place I joined as soon as I arrived in the US from China. It opened a whole new world to me. Since 2015, the After Five has become one of my best experience in this country.

Firstly, as a non-English native speaker, I received a lot of constructive encouragement to speak up in English with the great help from the club members. Because of the After Five, I gained more courage to attend the case competiton, and finally won the first prize of that national competition.

Secondly, public speaking, used to be one of my top fears, has become something I could enjoy  because of the experience at After Five. With the practice and evaluation here, I am now way more confident to give a  speech in front of either small or large group of people, which is so helpful for me to thrive in the business environment.

Thirdly, After Five is such a joyful place for me to get relax and become a better self. This place is full of nice and warm hearted people to share their experience to help others. Especially for a foreigner like me, I was concerned about how to get involved into American culture. After Five has provided me such a great opportunity to feel comfortable and learn different perspectives.

In a word, After Five has helped me in both professional and personal sides, such as language,  presentation, and culture, etc. And I’m sure this amazing  place has made impact not only to me but also to dozens of my classmates and friends. Thank you for providing this great place to us.

HSL librarian “made me learn something about myself I didn’t previously know… I love research!”

I am a DrPH student in cohort 12 and together with my cohort, we wanted to tell you about our excellent experience working with Mary White [Global Public Health Librarian]. Before working with Mary, not only did I not know how to use a citation manager, I had no idea what one was. The idea of learning this technology was daunting, and Mary made it both easy and fun. Since working with Mary, I am able to construct robust search strategies and have an agility I previously didn’t when it comes to using search databases. Mary always makes herself available whenever I have questions and has met with me in person and online and accommodated my crazy work schedule. Mary is amazing and has made me learn something about myself I didn’t previously know…. I love research!

“Enthusiastic and clear… incredibly responsive…knowledgeable”

“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!”
