New Easier Access to Welch Resources -- Access to the Remote Access to University Libraries system (RAUL) is being upgraded to use instead the university-wide log-in system, or JHED. Type in the JHED LoginID and personal password when prompted. This JHED LID and password will give you off-campus access to many of the university's secure networked services, including Web-based e-mail and library databases and electronic journals.

Those who originally registered with RAUL using a Welch Library Card and PIN, and are unfamiliar with their JHED LoginID, can go to the JHU Enterprise Directory at to search for their names, get a LoginID and create a password.

Anyone who has never used RAUL for off-campus access can visit for more information.
