Priscillla M. Mayden and Eccles Library

Priscilla M. Mayden served as Director of the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library from 1971 to 1984. To mark the occasion of her 100th birthday (2018), this portrait sketch presents some of the significant milestones in Priscilla’s personal life and professional career.

Priscilla was a visionary in her time, understanding the emerging role of computers in libraries and in healthcare at the bedside. She started the Hope Fox Eccles Clinical Library in the University Hospital in 1983 which was to serve clinical staff with the latest search capability close to the bedside.
