Trading Stacks for Page Views

Whoa, I think this news marked a turning point for medical educators:

Here's an article on about the Johns Hopkins medical library shutting down for good. No more bricks-and-mortar, wandering the stacks, paging through paper medical research. I spent a fair amount of time in real, physical medical libraries during my training. I have to say, being able to log in from the comfort of the living room couch and download any PDF I need is the way to go. Nevertheless, I couldn't help but feel a twinge of nostalgia.

And now for something completely different. I thought you might enjoy our new animated mascot!
