Honoring Our Members Who Have Retired
Research & Instruction Librarian Pat Weiss retired from the Health Sciences Library System, University of Pittsburgh, at the end of June after 20 years of service.
Pat started her graduate studies in library and information science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After moving to Pittsburgh in 1996, she completed her master of library and information science degree at Pitt.
Pat’s notable accomplishments included the development and launching of FRIP (Faculty Research Interests Project). FRIP allowed authors to identify their research areas using the National Library of Medicine’s Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) terms associated with their published articles. Pat also led the team that developed HSLS’ chat reference service. In addition, she worked with other librarians to create the popular FlashClass instructional program.
Pat’s Twitter profile identifies her as an alto, grandma, and medical librarian. Pat is looking forward to having more time for being an alto and a grandma and also for traveling.
We wish Pat the very best in her retirement!
