*About the Internship:*


The *Garfield-Taylor Internship*, named after Eugene Garfield, founder of
ISI, and Mark-Allen Taylor, long-time director of the Temple University
Health Sciences Libraries, is an opportunity to be part of a stimulating
academic health sciences information environment. Garfield and Taylor are
two people drawn to information discovery, teaching, learning, and creative
