Your Liaison Librarians

Helena VonVille

Helena VonVille is the Graduate School of Public Health Liaison at the Health Sciences Library System (HSLS), University of Pittsburgh.  Prior to coming to Pittsburgh, she was the Director of the UT School of Public Health Library at the University of Texas Health Science Center- Houston where she earned her Masters of Public Health Degree.

Prior to her working at UTSPH, she had the great honor and privilege of being a member of the "Founding Faculty" at Montgomery College, a community college north of Houston (now part of Lone Star College). A significant portion of the student population was composed of returning adults who had not had the opportunity to attend college until Montgomery College opened its doors. Many needed to complete their GED before embarking on their college career; their dedication and motivation was truly inspirational as was the dedication of the Montgomery College faculty Helena had the opportunity to work with.
