I really appreciate all the library has done..."If you are looking for historical information about the Health Science Center or about the history of medicinein Bexar County and across South Texas, please contact our Special Collections department: Anne Comeaux, Assistant Director; Pennie Borchers, Special Collections Librarian; and Mellisa De Thorne, Library Assistant. You may be surprised at the treasures you can find!Luke RosenbergerDirector of Library Technology and Historical Collections
