Craving Your Attention

Yes, we're craving YOUR attention! We know the strong PULL of summer fun is knock-knock-knocking away at your door. But we've got news that will shake your very foundation.
  
Well, maybe not that dramatic --- but we're positively PSYCHED about our May news. Maybe a little bit of our excitement rubs off on ya. 
 
New Resources
 
Yes, we're all jazzed up about our new resources. Take a look-see at our new guides.
 
1) This new Public Health guide offers a plethora of sources to support your research. 
 
2) And you say you could use a little help with grants and funding? We've got another a grants and funding guide that could be just what you're looking for.
Classes in July

Is the Welch Library offering a ZUMBA class? Noooooooooo, we're not offering ZUMBA! But who needs ZUMBA when you could take-----
 
"Finding Funding For Your Research" on June 19th (a few seats are still available)
 
All classes are in Lab 1, in the 2024 Bldg. "But "how do I get to the labs? Where are they?" You've have questions --- we've got answers to those questions, my friends. 
 
As always, if you have a suggestion for a new class, feel free to pass it along. We're always on the lookout.
 
New Collection Resources
 
We have a new journal available: Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology
 
Also, there are now over 700 Springer e-books with c2014 now available on the SpringerLink platform: http://link.springer.com/

On with the News......

That's all for May. If you have any comments you'd like to pass along, or any questions you need answered --- send them my way. Even if you're just unsure about the best croissants and pastries in Fells Point! (My money is on Bonaparte Breads, and if you stop by the back door after midnight, they'll sell you their goodies CHEAP. Not day-old goodies, Fresh-Baked Boodies)
 
See you next month.
