Yes!  The Dana Biomedical Library will be moving!  Twice!

Our first move will be to 37 Dewey Field Road.  This will be our temporary home in order to allow for the construction of the new North Campus Academic Center.  Our interim Dana Library will provide library services and student study space in a warm and cheerful environment. And, we are exploring the possibility of having it available to students 24×7!

This first move will not occur before April 1, 2013.  There will be no disruption of services at the current Dana Library during first term.

Our second move is now projected for the beginning of 2016, when the new North Campus Academic Center is scheduled to open.

During the interim period all of Dana’s print journal volumes and most of its books will be housed offsite;  reserve material and a few other books will move with us to 37 Dewey Field.  The material housed offsite will be quickly delivered to campus libraries upon request.

If you have questions about the moves, please contact us.  We’ll post more details here in the future.

Marilyn Milham and the Glitz Ensemble have created the Liberace Piano, one of the 50 Hands On Pianos scattered across the Upper Valley. The Liberace Piano is on display at King Arthur Bakery’s outside patio on Route 5 in Norwich until July 31. The Glitz Ensemble is made up of several Biomedical Libraries staff, including: Marilyn Milham, Susan Jorgensen, Owen McDowell, Danelle Sims, and Don Fitzpatrick, with the help of a few of Marilyn’s other friends: Mary Ellen Rigby, Dana Hanson, and Louise Moon. Susan came up with the Liberace theme and Marilyn and her crew took off from there, including painting, gluing of rhinestone, solar lights, and solar candelabra, as well as glitzy fabrics for back of piano and piano seat. We all enjoyed ourselves to the nines!

The Biomedical Libraries participated once again in the annual DHMC Patient Safety Awareness Fair held on March 6th, in Auditoria A-D.   This year’s event was sponsored by the DHMC Value Performance, Measurement and Patient Safety (VPMPS) Department and the theme was “Look Before You Leap… Be Aware for Safe Care.”  Representatives from a variety of DHMC departments shared their efforts whichfocused on Quality and Patient/Employee Safety needs at Dartmouth-Hitchcock.

This year, Cindy Stewart, an Associate Director for the Biomedical Libraries and Cheryl Wheelock, Access Services Supervisor for Matthews-Fuller, along with Research and Education Librarians Robin Paradis Montibello and Heather Blunt represented the Biomedical Libraries byshowcasing our resources and services in support of DHMC’s commitment to patient safety.  They had the opportunity to speak with  individuals, offering up ways that the Libraries can assist their efforts, through information resources, document delivery and literature searching services, and education programs. We look forward to pursuing collaborations with the various individuals with whom we spoke, as well continuing to support the patient safety efforts of Dartmouth-Hitchcock.

Christopher CurtisDid you watch the clock this past New Year’s Eve for the switch from 23:59:59 in the year 2011 to 00:00:00 in the year 2012?

Well, something similar was taking place among the Dartmouth College Libraries’ Resource Sharing staff in the past couple weeks.

On February 27, 2012,  at 10:58 AM, Christopher Curtis at the Dana Biomedical Library processed document delivery transaction number (TN) 500,000!

Every day library staff work together to get information to our patrons from other institutions, and send information from our collection to other libraries and institutions worldwide.  We want to thank everyone involved for their hard work in keeping this process running smoothly.

A special thanks to Ron Chabot for rallying the countdown to TN 500,000 with a contest among his Resource Sharing colleagues!  Chris Curtis not only processed the ‘winning’ request, he was closest in guessing the actual day and time (only less than 3 days off!).  Next stop—TN 1,000,000!  Ron’s calculation: 8 years, 8 months, and 18 days!
