The Rise of Digital Humanities

There seems to be a revolution underway. Perhaps it came a bit unnounced, because it certainly has slipped in without much fanfare. Maybe the fanfare didn't do the revolution justice. However it does have a Manifesto  and if that doesn't reel you in (it's rather long), then try these kernels from ars technica.

Interview With Rob Wright - New Informationist

Last week I was able to chat with Rob Wright, our new Basic Science Informationist. Rob hails from Houston, and outside of Welch he has an appreciation for Abstract Art. Whenever I interview someone new to the Library, I’m always impressed by the “renaissance person” backgrounds they bring along. Librarianship does seem to attract those with diverse interests.

Carrie Price and Alonzo: Tour Dem Parks Hon!

This past Sunday Carrie Price (new Welch Informationist) and Yours Truly Alonzo (not new at all) went out into the stinkin, stankin heat to Tour 5 or 6 parks in Baltimore City.

Global Health Opportunities at Hopkins

You know what this Site is----???---it's a mixed bag of global goodies and treats. Want to get out there? See some sights. Make a change. A difference. You know who you are. How about tackling Newark, NJ?! Nada. No. Won't happen. Not sexy. Not happening. But Mozambique? Ohhhhh yes, you know you're on that plane.

Hopkins Neighborhood Fund Promotes A Variety of City Resources

Sometimes, when we glance around to see all the daily development that feels like such an ongoing component of Johns Hopkins  ("look there's another new building!") don't we put on our jaded think caps and say "well, it IS Johns Hopkins!" And that's our little way of saying they can do pretty much as they please, am I right?

Does Your Future See A Tablet or A Laptop?

I'm at a crossroads. In the near future I'll probably purchase a new gadget. And here's the rub. I LOVE the idea of getting my hands on one of those supa-dupa new laptops that have too many bells and whistles to count. They're light, batteries last forever and I could officially say bub-bye to my too-old-and-done-long-ago-lost-it's-mojo laptop. But. There are now tablets galore, and the latest iPad is sexy as all get-out.

Who's Rockin That New Welch T-Shirt?

Why Photini Sennis of course. Associate Professor in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology. And how'd she get that Welch T-Shirt? She clicked on our FEEDBACK button on WelchWeb, and she gave us FEEDBACK. We picked her name at random, and the rest is history. All I do is show up with a camera and capture the bliss. "Happiness is....."
