About My Campaign


The highlight of Jeff's career was acting as chair and director of the NYU Health Sciences Library. Just a few months after he joined the NYUHSL in 2012 as associate director for research and education services Superstorm Sandy devastated the library. He was heavily involved in the renewal and redesign of the Sid and Ruth Lapidus Health Sciences Library reopened in 2016.

He was passionate about his work and profession and honored to work with intelligent and creative colleagues. In addition to the management of the library, he was most passionate about the transformation of medical libraries in the digital age. Through his professional associations, he provided leadership and mentorship to future leaders.

One of his tasks was regarding the budget and donations to the library so we find it most fitting to honor his life in this way.

If you feel motivated to donate any amount, no matter the size, please do. Your gift would mean so much to the many who depend on the work of the NYUHSL.
