“Alone we can do so little. Together, we can do so much.” - Helen Keller
Famously quoted, Helen Keller wrote, “Alone we can do so little. Together, we can do so much.” Her words exemplify the collaborative work librarians do with students, faculty, staff, and researchers across Dartmouth and beyond. For two years running, one such collaboration continues to build awareness - and appetites - for STEM at Dartmouth, National Chemistry Week.
National Chemistry Week is a fun and engaging way to demonstrate the impact of chemical research in everyday life. The events hosted during this week connect Dartmouth’s Chemistry Department’s faculty and students with each other across disciplines and interests.
The goal of the week is to share our mutual joy of chemistry with the rest of the Dartmouth community. - STEM Librarian Dr Lilly Linden
Lilly joined Dartmouth Libraries in early 2022. Her love for the scientific world and her specialty as a herpetologist positions her as a champion and advocate for STEM research at Dartmouth. Building connections with students, faculty, and researchers is what brings Lilly joy, and National Chemistry Week was an opportunity she knew would help nurture those relationships.
