Welcome, New Students!
Here are six things you should know about SAIS Library:
Spring 2012 Library hours.
- Mason Library is on the top 3 floors of the Nitze building (1740 Mass), with the entrance on floor 6. We're happy to orient you when you visit.
- If you're thinking ahead about papers / research and want to know which electronic resources to use, we have a concise list of Key Databases that might be a good starting point. Reference Librarians are glad to help too... (see #6!)
- You can do research from home. More details on off campus access. It's easy.
- Use these instructions to set up printing from your laptop.
- Your blue "J-card" (JHU ID card) will serve as your library card. You should always know your JHED login ID ("lid") and password. They have multiple uses.
- SAIS Librarians can help with any questions you might have. We're available Mon - Fri, 9-5, but feel free to call us at 202-663-5901 or Ask A SAIS Librarian online.
The secret to better research at SAIS Library is...
Want to make your research more effective - and faster? We're offering one-hour overviews of the Library's online resources.

Access to Course Readings
The arrow points to the electronic reserves link in Blackboard (normally you can see the password!)Starting Monday, January 23rd, students will be able to access online readings (for courses in which they are enrolled), via Blackboard. On the left navigation in Blackboard, there is a link to Course Readings that has the course-specific password for the electronic reserves page (see screen capture above).
If you have any questions about reserve readings, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Library at 202-663-5900 and ask for Steve Sears. If you are unable to see a class you think you are registered for, please contact Nathan Kreps. Thank you.
