Have You reDISCOVERED The Welch Library

It’s right there on our page. The new slideshow that’s changing slides as we speak. If you haven’t given it a click or two --- what are you waiting for?

It’s all about the reDISCOVERY of the Welch Library in focus and language that patrons can best understand. Our reDISCOVERY explains who we are, what we offer and mentions the Resources we provide. We’ve tried to get to the essence of what the Welch Library is all about.

When we’re out and about around campus doing information tables, we (usually a Library Informationist and myself) have the opportunity to speak with many students, staff and faculty. They always want to know what’s going on with Welch. “Plenty,” we answer. We’re still very much alive and kicking! Have you seen our Services?


Are you aware of all the multi-faceted work being done by our Informationists? Well read below!

Have you seen how vast our Collection truly is?

And Space? We’ve got historic and modern space.  If you haven’t seen our renovated second floor you’re missing a unique study oasis on campus (renovated West Reading Room below)

Have you been in one of our quiet Carrels on Stack Level 4? (below) You can read, study, nap, wake up, read, study and nap some more!

And, let’s not forget our crackerjack Service Center Desk Staff (that's Christopher Henry, below right) that does such a great job with all your circulation/reference questions, and helps you navigate around the library (judging from the questions we get, we help folks get around the east Baltimore campus too).

That’s what’s up with the Welch Library. We’re excited that there’s more to come!  If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line. If I can’t help, I’ll be sure to direct you to someone who can.
