Historical Note

In 1992, C.K. Huang, who had been director of the Health Sciences Library for 22 years, retired. Following a resolution passed by the Health Sciences Library Faculty Advisory Committee, the University Libraries constituted a Blue Ribbon Committee of outside consultants to review the operations of the Health Sciences Library prior to a search for a new director of the Health Sciences Library.

The committee was comprised of: Marty Adamson, Associate Director, University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center Library; Alison Bunting, Associate University Librarian for Sciences, UCLA Louise Darling Biomedical Library; Patricia Mickelson, Director of Library and Academic Information Service for the Schools of the Health Sciences, University of Pittsburgh; and Pat Molholt, Assistant Vice President, Associate Dean for Scholarly Resources, Columbia University Health Sciences.

The committee visited the campus on June 2-4, 1993 and submitted their final report in August 1993.
