 Academic Resources

Milton S. Eisenhower Library

The Milton S. Eisenhower Library is the university’s principal research library and the largest in a network of libraries at Johns Hopkins. The library is named for the university’s eighth president, whose vision brought together the university’s rich collection of books, journals, and other scholarly resources.

Strengths in the humanities include German and Romance Languages, Philosophy, and the Ancient Near East. In science and engineering, collection strengths include biomedical engineering, chemistry and environmental engineering. The library also offers an extensive array of electronic resources, including full-text books and journals, specialized databases, and statistical and cartographic data.

Brody Learning Commons

The Brody Learning Commons connects to the Eisenhower Library and includes a large quiet reading room, 16 group study rooms, teaching and seminar rooms, and a café. The Commons is also home to the Department of Special Collections and the Department of Conservation and Preservation.

  • Special Collections Reading Room open until 5pm
  • Brody Café open until 12am

Albert D. Hutzler Reading Room and Learning Den

The Hutzler Reading Room (fondly known as “The HUT”) is located in Gilman Hall, one of the earliest academic building on Homewood campus. The iconic reading room features a high ceiling and 19 beautiful stained-glass windows bearing the marks of Renaissance printers.

 Tutors review course-specific material and encourage students to ask questions and exchange information. Students should come to tutoring sessions prepared with questions and specific topics that they would like to review. Students can expect to work with other students in the group while the tutor helps to guide them to understanding. Tutoring is not a substitute for class attendance nor is it a place to just do homework. If you need help in a subject, request support early and often. See Learning Den, for more information regarding tutoring schedules.
