And just like everybody else, we want our friends and significant others (that would be you) to comment on it! So please poke around the site and let us know what you think.  Is there something missing?  Are you having a hard time finding something? Are you confused?  We want to know so we can improve access to all the wonderful resources we have.

You can access the feedback form on the right side of the site, it's that handy little button with "feedback" on it.

To provide incentive, we're going to have a drawing every month to give away at least one Welch Medical Library t-shirt.  If you want to be in the drawing, make sure to include your name and email address on your comment. 

If you have any questions, contact Alonzo Lamont (Alonzo@jhmi.edu) or Katie Lobner (klobner1@jhmi.edu).

And if you have insomnia, the official rules are right here:
