Welch Updates & Happenings

We just wanted to pass along several news-worthy items….  

If you’ve installed the Kluwer/LWW journal app for iPad® here’s a notice from Kluwer:

“Dear LWW Journal App User,

Have you heard about the Hopkins Open Access Promotion Fund?

The Open Access Promotion Fund (OAPF) is going strong (folks are applying), so in case you hadn’t seen the information for OAPF, here’s all you’ll need to know.

Tickets are on sale for our “Telling: Baltimore” performance.

This production is being sponsored by the Welch Medical Library and the Hopkins Office of Cultural Affairs. The Telling Project is a performing arts non-profit that employs theater to deepen our understanding of the military and veterans’ experience. Telling works closely with the Veterans Artist Program (VAP) who work closely with many local and national veterans organizations. (pictured below) that’s Shannon Dunn of the Office of Cultural Affairs, BR McDonald, Founder and President of VAP, and Max Reyneard, Director of Research and Outcomes with the Telling Project. We were all in the School of Public Health working out the details for the September 26th performance.

And last, but certainly not least, everyone can throw out your chest a little bit because your hometown Baltimore Orioles are back in the news.

Take a second to repeat after me, my friends: “Go O’s!” At Welch we have an Orioles cheering section that I “touch bases with” (get it) almost daily. Ivy Garner, who teaches RefWorks, Maurice Wright who works with Document Distribution, Steve Katzen who works with Advanced Technology and Information Systems --- all of us follow the Orioles and Ravens passionately. And now we’re all walking a little taller. As I mentioned on Facebook, we’re all so disappointed that Yankee and Red Sox fans had disappointing years. Not a day goes by that our little crew don’t feel the sadness and pain these fans must share. We’ve come up with a word that expresses our sadness, and it’s pronounced “hahahahahahahaha!”
