Our October Newsletter features a simple formula: ALL Treats, No Tricks. But first! FIRST! Our new Director Anne Seymour is gone! Yes, she's gone, gone, gone away to Africa. What's she doing there? Why'd she leave us? When's she coming back? It's a mystery that you dear reader, can solve! Send me your "theory" on why our beloved Anne is gone, gone, gone and you're getting a free Welch T-Shirt and Welch library bag. E-mail me your idea  of "Why's Anne in Africa" and I'll let you know if you won. 

On With The News..........We've got several new friends visiting Welch. They're our National Library of Medicine Fellows Christian Minter (below left), and Holly Thompson (right). Maybe you heard our recent podcast with them. How did they get here? (at Welch) Where do they come from? They've got great stories to tell --- We'll be hearing more from them down the road.


Having trouble with E-Reserves? Is it all a blur? Too much confusion? A hassle? Don't surrender! We've got ARES broken down for you.

And while you're stopping by YouTube, you just HAVE to see our Welch Library MelodyMakers "Lord of the Dance" video. It was done a few months back as part of a "Battle of the Medical Library Bands" contest. Disclaimer: we don't have a medical library band. We had to incorporate a Celtic Theme and Music. How's our performance? The word is "PRECIOUS," my friends. Pure PRECIOUS.

A COUPLE QUESTIONS? What ARE these pictures (below) of? And where are they located in the Welch Library? Anybody know? The first 5 folks I hear from who guess RIGHT get a $15 buck Daily Grind Gift Card. 


Our  upcoming classes are filling up! We've still got a couple spaces left for November and December classes (but you'd best "hustle your bustle"). If you're seeking more immediate assistance with help with Endnote, our YouTube Channel has many Endnote tutorials. If you're missing Refworks, rarely a month goes by when we're not offering either Refworks or Advanced Refworks. But if time is of the essence, our "Online Tutorials and Guides" could be just the answer to your prayers.
