Library Wishes 2013

If you could have three library wishes, what would they be?

During the month of July 2013, the Health Sciences Library asked our users to let us know what three wishes they would request from a library genie. The library staff wanted to use this information to assist in creating a new strategic plan.

The library was thrilled to receive 108 submissions for a total of 352 wishes! The most popular type of wish was for an addition to the library’s collection – a book, journal, database, or other type of resource.  The Library’s Collection Management department is researching those requests right now.

The library wanted to share all 352 wishes that were received. The wishes can be viewed below. Additionally, if a wish could be “granted” right now, that information is included in the Comment column.

The library will continue working on updating its strategic plan and are hoping to share a draft in early fall.
