    The Stephen B. Thacker (SBT) CDC Library has served as a hub of research, information exchange, and learning for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) since it was established in 1946.

    On July 11, 2014, the CDC Public Health Library and Information Center (PHLIC) was renamed the Stephen B. Thacker CDC Library to honor Dr. Thacker’s extraordinary legacy of leadership and 37 years of service at CDC. Dr. Thacker is widely recognized as a preeminent public health advisor, mentor, and important contributor to the field of epidemiology and public health science. He was a prolific writer who published more than 240 articles and books and served as an editor of scientific papers and journal supplements on a broad range of public health topics. Dr. Thacker was a retired Assistant Surgeon General in the U.S. Public Health Service who served with distinction in key CDC positions throughout his career. Dr. Thacker was a recent Director of the Office of Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services, the previous organizational home of the CDC PHLIC.

    The Stephen B. Thacker CDC Library is managed by the Library Science and Services Branch (LSSB), Division of Epidemiology, Analysis, and Library Services (DEALS), Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services (CSELS).
