Mary Adams, the Nursing and Health Sciences Librarian, at the Claire T. Carney Library has retired after 17 years of outstanding service to UMass Dartmouth. Mary will be missed for many reasons, most notably for her tireless efforts to find, evaluate and acquire important information resources for the nursing and health sciences and her dedication to helping “her students” learn how to find scholarly information for their research projects. Mary was recently thanked for her great service and congratulated on her upcoming retirement for at the UMass Dartmouth College of Nursing Scholarship Day. Just before she left, faculty and library staff gathered for an afternoon tea to celebrate her career at UMass Dartmouth. At the gathering it was noted how much both faculty and students will miss her ever present support and expertise. Mary thanked all for the lovely tea and gifts and said she would probably be using one of the gifts, a tablet, to check out some of the library’s new eBooks, if she could figure out how to get it up and working properly!
