When you become a Friend of the Johns Hopkins University Libraries, you join one of the oldest Friends groups in the nation. What began in 1931 in a classroom in Gilman Hall has grown into a national network of supporters, true friends who have helped to provide generations of scholars with essential library resources.
The “library” looks much different than it did 80 years ago, and technology continues to transform the ways in which researchers work. Thanks to Friends, we are able not simply to meet scholars’ needs but to anticipate them. Your generosity ensures that the only limits faced by our students and faculty are those of their imaginations.
