I received some impromtu face time with Kathy Danko who relayed that the Lilienfeld Library project finished ahead of schedule. Specifically she thanked the coordinated efforts of Digital Library Services, Facilities and the Public Health Informationists. As you know, Lilienfeld is being converted into a School of Public Health (in the Hampton House) study space.  Kathy added that along with the physical relocation of a a substantial portion of the collection to Welch, the books were also evaluated for their necessity (what Welch decided to keep) and placement (recycling). After the evaluation was done, students (and anyone else) were allowed to "adopt" some of the homeless books.  Sue Woodson was pleased that the relocation was finished two weeks ahead of schedule, and credited Gary Faulkner, who found a recycler for the project.  We'll hear more from Sue in a minute because she commented on the larger implications behind the transformation, not just with Lilienfeld and Welch, but medical libraries in general. More on that conversation is forthcoming.......

Who wants the elderly to have to shlep around in those little vans, driven by somebody going 55 MPH through residential neighborhoods. At least that's what I run across. Well, read and judge for yourself. Pros and cons either way, eh?

Just when you thought it was safe to brag about organic butter. Seriously, who knew good fat ever existed. And say what you will, this man was meant for a camera. AND, say what you will but I'm not giving up my soymilk, no matter what comes down the pike.

I  always thought IV fluids were an absolute necessity. Apparently, somebody says otherwise.

I altered the title from this article just a tad. It asks questions I think many of us are sure to face. When should we opt for surgery? If you've 'reached a certain age," maybe you'll shy away from all things HOSPITAL-RELATED. (You know exactly what I mean). Maybe if you're younger, things aren't so daunting. Decisions, decisions, decisions........

If you're like me, major decisions seem to boil down this way?
