Sadly, after a long illness, Lynn Sette passed away peacefully last week. Lynn was beloved by so many here at the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library, as a truly kind and considerate friend and colleague.
Lynn first joined the Medical Library as an Acquisitions Assistant in 1979. She earned her Masters in Library Science from Southern Connecticut State University in 1983, and truly loved being a reference librarian since then. She was very passionate about her work, and served as a library liaison to the Departments of Pediatrics and Dermatology, as well as a personal librarian for medical students. Among her proudest accomplishments was her collaboration with staff at the New Haven Free Public Library to create a consumer health information resource and collection there to serve the health information needs of New Haven residents. For many years Lynn also volunteered weekly at Yale New Haven Hospital’s Newborn Special Care Unit, work that was extremely close to her heart.
Please join the Library in extending our most heartfelt condolences to Lynn’s family.
