In the many years I have belonged to NCNMLG, Rebecca Davis has been a leader and inspiration for the organization.

I especially appreciate her combination of level-headed common sense and her creative ideas for dealing with many types of problems. She is also great fun to work with.

I invite you to contribute comments and anecdotes about your experiences with Rebecca, as we congratulate her on her retirement.

    Dear Rebecca,

    I’ve so enjoyed knowing you throughout my career, as a former NLM Associate Fellow, UC Librarian and NCNMLG member. I have many fond memories of you at Joint Meetings and MLA meetings and events. You have given so much to both NCNMLG, UC Libraries and the health sciences library profession. I could always count on you for practical advice and appreciate all your kindness, intelligence and grace. You have been (and will continue to be) a shining example for those in our profession and an excellent human being. May you enjoy your retirement and continue to inspire others!
