University-Wide Graduate Resource Page: This is a webpage with tons of really useful resources for graduate student life. This has information on official academic policies, services for for students spanning disability concerns to travel information, professional development resources, life in Baltimore (housing, family services, diversity, service and more), and graduation information.
Access to journals off-campus: An easy way to bypass a journal’s paywall with your JHU ID is by appending “.proxy1.library.jhu.edu” to the domain. For a specific example, “http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S000349161500247X” becomes “http://www.sciencedirect.com.proxy1.library.jhu.edu/science/article/pii/S000349161500247X“.
