Four months ago I wrote about the "stickiness" of health sciences librarians--a close-knitness that Scott wrote about in the Journal of the Medical Library Association in 2003. Librarians are naturally collegial people in whatever field of librarianship they choose. But something about health sciences libraries lends itself particularly to close relationships.
This came home for me for yesterday. Within hours of posting about my American Prospect fellowship application, there were three encouraging comments from Jane, Theodora, and Cynthia. Perhaps it should go without saying that they are all health sciences librarians.
