Honoring Charla Kleopfer

Recently, the library was gifted a digital copy of Managing Diabetic Eye Disease in Clinical Practice in memory of Charla Kleopfer.

Charla Kleopfer worked at the Health Sciences Library after getting her masters in library science in 1979. Charla left a lasting impact on Diane Johnson, Assistant Director of the Health Sciences Library, when Diane first came to work at the library.

“Charla was one of my earliest mentors when I came to MU as a newly minted professional straight out of library school.  I will always remember how welcome she made me feel, and how generous she was with her expertise – the beginning of a long friendship.  It seemed fitting to honor her memory with this book.”

The University Libraries Honor with Books program lets patrons honor someone special with a book purchase.
