    Great news!  The Library now offers an easier way for current students, faculty, and staff to connect to the Library's electronic resources from off-campus.  Go to the library homepage and start your research using the Databases link or the library catalog; once you select a resource you will be prompted to sign in using your Goucher credentials (the same ones you use to log into email) and you will be passed through to the resource.  You should only need to log in once per research session.  For more information please see the Off-Campus Access FAQs.  Any questions, please contact Kristen Welzenbach, Digital Systems and Services Librarian, at kristen.welzenbach@goucher.edu or call (410) 337-6370.

    Registration is now open for the Baltimore Libraries: Past, Present, Future class.  As part of the Book Studies minor, this course will explore the rich history of Baltimore libraries through readings, discussion and site visits. We will also look more broadly at the history of libraries in the United States, and consider larger questions such as how libraries reflect changing ideas about books and society. This class will be taught by College Librarian Nancy Magnuson on Wednesdays from 12:30pm - 3:00pm.  Please contact Nancy Magnuson for more details at (410) 337-6364.
