Congratulations to Dolores Judkins, MLS, AHIP, Associate University Librarian for Information & Research Services, who is retiring at the end of June.
Ms. Judkins has served the OHSU community as a member of the Library Faculty for over 30 years. Her distinguished contributions are numerous and have played a critical role in improving the health of Oregonians and the education of Oregon health professionals. She has held leadership positions as the Director of the Dental Library, Head of Research & Reference Services, and Associate University Librarian for Information & Research Services.
Ms. Judkins has a strong record of scholarship with over 40 successful grant applications and many authored papers and professional presentations. She helped initiate the innovative provision of online library resources to Oregon licensed health professionals through legislative funding and has served multiple terms on the OHSU Faculty Senate.
She has also consistently and favorably represented OHSU through leadership positions held in national and regional professional associations, such as the Medical Library Association, the Oregon Health Sciences Libraries Association, and the Association of American Medical Colleges Western Group on Educational Affairs and Libraries in Medical Curriculum SIG. As a Distinguished Member of the Academy of Health Information Professionals since 1990, Ms. Judkins has mentored and guided the careers of many librarians and information professionals.
In the OHSU Library’s rich history, there have been few on its faculty whose sustained contributions have had comparable impact to those of Ms. Judkins. It is with great pleasure that we announce that Dolores Judkins has been appointed to the Emeritus Faculty of the OHSU Library.
