Situated in Baltimore, the beautiful and sprawling Homewood Campus represents the main campus of Johns Hopkins University’s Zanvyl Kreiger School of Arts and Sciences.
About the Campus
The Homewood Campus is home to a large and diverse student population of undergraduate and full and part-time graduate students.
The Sheridan Libraries encompass the Milton S. Eisenhower Library and its collections at the Albert D. Hutzler Reading Room in Gilman Hall, the John Work Garrett Library at Evergreen House, and the George Peabody Library at Mt.Vernon Place. Together these collections provide the major research library resources for the university. The Sheridan Libraries also provide a rich array of resources and services for part-time and full-time students. The Milton S. Eisenhower Library is the university’s principal research library and the largest of a network of libraries at Hopkins. A repository of nearly three million books and over 55,000 print and electronic journal subscriptions, it also employs the latest information technology to offer users access anytime and anywhere to resources ranging from ancient texts to the latest scientific reports. The mission of the Sheridan Libraries is to advance research and teaching at The Johns Hopkins University by providing information resources, instruction, and services.
Interlibrary Services (ILS) provides access to materials not owned by the Eisenhower Library. ILS will contact other libraries to borrow books or have articles electronically delivered to you. All current faculty, students, and staff with a JHU library card are eligible for free, unlimited use of Interlibrary Services. Materials can be obtained from other JHU libraries and from libraries outside of the JHU system. For more information on current hours of operation and other services, please visit the libraries’ website.

In addition, students may use laboratories containing workstations and personal computers with access to the servers.
