Visit from Biology Institute at Exeter


On June 24th, 2015, the library welcomed high school biology teachers from across the United States. Hosted by OEB Prof. Scott Edwards, teachers attending the Biology Institute at Exeter explored the Museum of Comparative Zoology’s Ornithology Collection, the Ernst Mayr Library and the Harvard Museum of Natural History.


Robert Young, Special Collections Librarian, created an exhibit for them in the Special Collections reading room, featuring zoological works from the 18th and 19th centuries. An unexpected treat for the visitors was being allowed to turn the pages! Among many questions asked was: “What is the oldest book in the library?” Answer: Albertus Magnus, De animalibus libri xxvi, Mantua, 1479.   For more information on the exhibit contact  mayrlib at

More Librarian Travels


Straight from the SLA Convention I took the Train to Maine to attend the New England Science Boot Camp for librarians at Bowdoin College in Brunswick. Boot Camp is an intensive two and a half days covering various science topics in depth with other science librarian specialists; this year’s subjects were Neuroscience, Marine Science and Ornithology, presented by faculty from several area colleges including Bowdoin, Tufts, the University of New England, UMass Med School and Colby. All presentations were excellent, and we learned a lot and networked with colleagues from as far away as California and Vancouver. On the last day we drew up and critiqued faculty Data Management Plans (DMPs), now required by most funding agencies. Finally we toured Bowdoin’s Coastal Studies Center, met some of the students working there, visited the wet lab and heard about their research, and then spent a happy half hour dabbling about on the rocky coast examining the intertidal pools with the enthusiasm of children.

Librarian Travels


June is Conference Month in Library Land. From June 13-16 I was at the SLA (Special Libraries) Annual Convention in Boston attending board meetings and sessions and received an award for helping with program planning from the Biomedical Division. One session on Evolution featured two of our faculty: Hopi Hoekstra and Jim Mallet (ably assisted by Henry Mallet) who received rave reviews from attendees for their presentations.

Broadfoot awarded Dean’s Distinction


On Thursday, March 12, 2015, Dean Michael Smith honored 34 individuals and 4 teams from the Faculty of Arts and Science with the Dean’s Distinction award. A lively reception was held at University Hall to recognize their outstanding contributions to FAS. The Ernst Mayr Library’s Ronnie Broadfoot was selected this year for exemplary service to library users and his efforts on behalf of the Library.


Ronnie’s commendation states:

“Ronnie Broadfoot works well with staff members within the Ernst Mayr Library, the Museum of Comparative Zoology, and across FAS. He strives to provide the best and most appropriate services for a given situation, excelling particularly in providing course reserves and reference assistance. Ronnie works “outside the box” and offers services without being asked. We receive unsolicited comments from faculty and students attesting to Ronnie’s service ethic and helpfulness navigating the Harvard Library and Museum complex. Ronnie tracks relevant courses in the Museum complex, identifies print materials that might be required and contacts professors before the beginning of each semester, to ensure that items are available to the students in the expected place at the right time. When approached with a student’s reference question, Ronnie probes for the “question behind the question,” helping clarify the information that would be most helpful. In 2014, several projects affected the library collection simultaneously, necessitating the sudden move of thousands of volumes. Ronnie worked out the details of where volumes would fit and kept everyone abreast of the shifting locations. Because of Ronnie’s swift actions and communication, the library remained fully functional and responsive to campus needs, even in the midst of change.”

Also honored were local colleagues Megan McHugh from the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and Tristan Rocher of the Harvard Museums of Science and Culture.
