ACRL-Oregon Awards Todd Hannon

The Oregon Chapter of the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL-Oregon) recently recognized OHSU Reference Librarian, Todd Hannon with its 2013 Award for Excellence.  Todd’s work with rural Oregonians on the Community Research Enhancement and Education Development (CREED) project led to the award.

The ACRL Oregon Board felt that Todd’s work teaching community members about the role of literature searching in the research process played a vital role in translating librarianship into community empowerment in the service of public health.

OHSU’s Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute and the Oregon Rural Practice-Based Research Network partnered to carry out the CREED project. Congratulations Todd!

Electronic Resources Survey

The OHSU Library is conducting a survey to evaluate the usage of our electronic resources.  Over the next year we will be asking students, faculty, and staff to complete a brief questionnaire when accessing the Library’s online journals, books, and databases.  You will not encounter the survey every time you access the Library online, but may be asked to respond more than once over the next year.  The survey data is very important to us and will inform future decisions and services.  Thank you in advance for your participation.  For questions and comments, please contact
