“Having had the privilege of serving as chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine these past 18 years, I am well aware of the substantive and continual advances made by our AHEC Information and Library System under the leadership of Ms. Lee Kaufmann and thanks to the great efforts of her staff and administration. The growth and development of the AHEC Digital Library over this past decade, in particular, has permitted facile interface with the core search engines, and ready access to mainstream as well more obscure but often critical journals, textbooks and other electronic medical resources. All of these can be accessed within the library or, more importantly, from anywhere and at any time, including when answers are needed at the bedside in a timely manner. Finally, the staff is, warm, welcoming, exceptionally skilled and always at the ready to assist in any manner possible.”
