Librarians and translational research: One year of accommodation

Given how central informatics is to the Harvard University CTSA proposal, the directors of the HMS Countway Library of Medicine (who also happen to be co-directors of the HMS Center for Biomedical Informatics) recently decided to help out with a challenging problem: Where to house the CTSA leadership (including Lee Nadler and Steve Freedman) until the University will have prepared their more permanent home next year? We (Alexa McCray and myself) offered to give up our offices on the fifth floor of the Library for one year and relocate ourselves on the fourth floor for that one year. Lee and Steve promised not to get too comfortable in our Library and Daniel Ennis of the administration assured us of the efforts made to create a home elsewhere for our CTSA colleagues.
