Take the Welch Library Stack Tour.  The stacks have always been one of our favorite places at Welch, they're an uber-labyrinth of medical knowledge.

The narrow passage ways, centuries of old books, dizzying, zigzagging staircases to different levels that seem to go on forever. However, if you’re unable to climb the stairs, take a ride on the elevator:

 

The elevator is an old relic of past elevators. Needless to say, it’s quite an adventure.

Don't deprive yourself of seeing The Institute of The History of Medicine Collection. It’s a treasure trove of books with a range of subjects ranging from the Occult, to Religion , Sex, History, and much more. The Institute, and it's history, are much more than just a website. Just take a look at their Graduate Program. Plus, their staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
