If you see a theft or other crime in progress, immediately call 541-737-7000. For non-emergencies, such as to report a theft after it has occurred, call OSU Security at 541-737-3010.

New to campus and unfamiliar with the Valley Library? In addition to the "Floor Maps" link on the upper right of the homepage, we also have an updated brochure that contains a map of each floor in the library to make your wayfinding much easier.

The oversize brochure is located in the brochure rack that is on the left as you enter the library's main entrance and elsewhere within the library. The brochure is called, "The Valley Library Services and Floor Maps." And you can always ask for directions from any library staff or faculty person when you'd like directions.

His new responsibilities include coordinating development of the OneSearch/Primo discovery layer, and he is especially interested in user experience throughout the research process. He holds a master’s in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a B.A. in Art History from George Mason University.

Lindsay Marlow joined the Valley Library’s Teaching and Engagement department in July as the Instruction and Outreach Librarian for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Lindsay came from the University of South Dakota, where she was the Science Librarian. She earned her master’s in Library Science from the State University of New York at Buffalo, and her B.S. in Wildlife and Conservation Biology from Murray State University. 

Dr. Clara Llebot started in July as a Data Manager Specialist for the Center for Digital Scholarship and Services at the Valley Library. She has a degree in Environmental Sciences with specialization in environmental technology from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, an advanced studies diploma from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in Spain, and a Ph.D. in Oceanography from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Her previous job was at OSU’s College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences where she was a post-doc working on the biogeochemical modeling of the Columbia River estuary. She has also worked at the National Science Foundation’s Center for Coastal Margin Observation and Prediction in Portland. 

Autumn Sunshine joined the Valley Library in July as a Circulation Library Technician II in the Library Experience and Access department. She is responsible for assisting patrons with account questions, coordinating lockers, kiosks, the library’s physical signage and open hours integration with Alma (a data infrastructure platform). She began working in public libraries as a volunteer at the McMinnville Public Library almost nine years ago and later became a regular employee at the McMinnville, Stayton and Salem public libraries after working as a private school librarian. She is thrilled at the opportunity for a continuing career and education at OSU and looks forward to bringing meaningful contributions to the university and its library.

Elizabeth Nielsen and Chris Petersen, two librarians in the Special Collections and Archives Research Center at the Valley Library, are winners of university awards for 2016. They will be honored along with others at the University Day celebration on September 19. 

Elizabeth Nielsen is the winner of the OSU Professional Faculty Excellence Award, and Chris Petersen is the winner of the Outstanding Faculty Research Assistant Award. Their work epitomizes many core values of OSU Libraries and Press. 

“Elizabeth Nielsen's twenty-five years of service to OSU have been consistently exceptional,” according to Larry Landis, Director of the Special Collections and Archives Research Center at the Valley Library. “For many years, she has coordinated the Special Collections and Archives Research Center's work with making collections ready for researcher use. Within that scope, she has mentored and worked with many student assistants, providing them with meaningful experiential learning opportunities. More recently, she worked with campus partners to create a new university records retention policy and schedule. A colleague in the Orbis Cascade Alliance characterized Elizabeth as ‘unafraid to work hard’ and ‘genuinely innovative.’” 

“I am humbled and honored to receive this recognition,” acknowledged Elizabeth Nielsen. “My colleagues in the Special Collections and Archives Research Center and the OSU Libraries and Press are fabulous and, in my view, the best on campus. Their encouragement and collaboration are integral to my accomplishments. My deep thanks to Larry Landis for the nomination and to those who wrote letters of support.” 

“Chris Petersen has engaged in a broad range of work activities during his time with the OSU Libraries and Press,” notes Larry Landis, “from serving as co-editor of the six-volume work, ‘The Pauling Catalogue — Ava Helen and Linus Pauling Papers at Oregon State University’ to managing the recent OSU Sesquicentennial Oral History Project. Two qualities have been consistent throughout all of his work: professionalism and innovation.” 

Says Chris Petersen about the award: “It’s very gratifying to have my work acknowledged with this award. OSU has been a wonderful place to build a career, and I’ve been fortunate to collaborate with some truly outstanding colleagues in pursuing a number of really interesting projects. Working here also happens to be a lot of fun, so I feel doubly blessed to find myself where I am. To say that Oregon State has played a significant role in my life would be a vast understatement, and I look forward to doing what I can to advance its ambitions in the years to come.” 

Don't leave your backpack or electronics unattended in the library or in other public areas on campus as thefts do occur.
