Welch Staff Directory & Emergency Weather Policy

Do you ever wonder --- “who works at the Welch Library?” Good question. We have a variety of different Departments; Digital Library Services, Cataloging, Document Distribution --- I could go on, but you can see for yourself.

We may not always be visible, but like busy “behind-the-scene” worker bees we’re hard at work processing new journals, filling inter-library loan requests, notifying patrons about an item they requested, delivering books (in rain, snow or just plain ole Baltimore summer heat, my friends) --- and much, much more. It’s all in a day’s work.

And speaking of weather….

We seem to be in the daily grind of bitter temperatures, the threat of snow or both. Here’s some information that states our Weather Emergency Policy:

If JHU is closed or classes are canceled, Welch Library Services will be closed

If JHU announces a delayed opening or early closing time, Welch Library Services will open/close at the newly designated time

In all other cases, library services will be available during posted operating hours. As always, online resources are ALWAYS available 24/7 right here at our website.

For official announcements, call the JHU Weather Emergency Line at 410-516-7781 or 1-800-548-9004.

But, the students in front of the Eisenhower Library seem to have the perfect cure for our latest arctic blast. (Below, Homewood Campus)
