Breast cancer support group forming
WSU Counseling Services will offer a breast cancer support group for faculty and staff women beginning Feb. 5. Meetings will be 12:10-1 p.m. Thursdays in Lighty 286.
 
For more information, contact Jane Barga at 335-4511 or jbarga@wsu.edu.
 
Health Sciences Library refocused, renamed
The Health Sciences Library in Wegner 170 has been renamed the Animal Health Library and will serve primarily the faculty, staff and students of the College of Veterinary Medicine.
 
Planning has begun for the transfer of pharmacy books and journals to Owen Science & Engineering Library. The disposition of most medical and basic science books and journals will be determined later with input from faculty, students and staff.
 
A small group study room and small table seating have been added, and shelves have been removed to create more open spaces. The goal is to make the AHL more student centered and study focused. The lower level of the library will be vacated and ultimately occupied by the College of Pharmacy.
 
Vicki Croft will continue as the head of the AHL, with Joan Campbell as library archives and paraprofessional 5.
