About the Internship:
The Garfield-Taylor Internship, named after Eugene Garfield, founder of ISI, and Mark-Allen Taylor, long-time director of the Temple University Health Sciences Libraries, is an opportunity to work and learn in a stimulating academic health sciences information environment. Garfield and Taylor are two people drawn to information discovery, teaching, learning, and creative inquiry - and the Internship was the natural outgrowth of their mutual respect and friendship. Taking inspiration from the well-regarded MLA Cunningham Fellowship, the Garfield-Taylor Internship will provide training and work experience for a graduate student interested in pursuing a career in health sciences librarianship. The Philadelphia area is replete with academic health sciences libraries, health system knowledge management centers, and for-profit bioscience information vendors, providing a rich training ground for new health sciences librarians. The area is home to Dr. Eugene Garfield, a pioneer in bioscience information, who founded the Institute for Scientific Information in 1960 and developed internationally recognized citation and information discovery tools, including Current Contents and Science Citation Index
. The newly opened Ginsburg Health Sciences Library, where Mr. Taylor was most recently its director, combines the best of a digital information hub, a personalized online library service center with expert subject specialists, and an engaging
interactive learning environment.
