December 2012 Library Faculty Association Presentation

The Oregon State University Libraries Library Faculty Association invites all interested colleagues and friends to attend the December presentation of the 2012/2013 Seminar Series.  In 2011 four OSU library faculty members began a year-long qualitative investigation into eReader adoption by 30 of their OSU Libraries & Press colleagues. In Studying ourselves: eReaders and Adoption at OSU Libraries & Press, the investigators will present what they learned about themselves, the library, and their colleagues and patrons over the year. Findings and implications about eReaders and eReading adoption will be discussed. This study was generously funded by the Robert Lundeen Library Faculty Development Award.

 Presenters are: Laurie Bridges, Instruction and Emerging Technologies Librarian; Uta Hussong-Christian, Instruction and Science Librarian; Jane Nichols, Collection Development Librarian; and Evviva Weinraub, Director of Emerging Technologies and Services. Each has adopted an eReading device.

 The presentation will take place on December 14, 2012 from 10:00-11:30 a.m. in the Willamette Industries Seminar Rooms on the third floor of the Valley Library (VL 3622).
