Welcome to the OSU Libraries News and Events page!

The Valley Library Circulation Desk has 12 Dell Latitude laptops available for long term borrowing. These laptops are intended to be term-long laptop substitutes for students without computers. As such, we are prioritizing students in need of a laptop due to hardship or unexpected misfortune.

For more information or to fill out the online application, go to bit.ly/valley-laptops

Applications are due by Saturday, July 1st. Laptop recipients will be notified by Wednesday, July 5th. If you are not contacted by this date, you may be contacted at a later date as laptops are returned and become available. You may apply in all terms that you need a laptop.

If you have any questions, please contact the Valley Library Circulation Desk at valley.circ@oregonstate.edu or (541) 737-7254.

The Libraries and Press do amazing work, and an Impact Report is compiled each year that concisely and elegantly describes the work that we do and how many students are impacted by the resources and services of the Libraries and Press. 

In addition to scintillating facts and figures (like, how many people study and do research at the Valley Library in a year? Answer: 1.25 million) and an overview of some of the many accomplishments of Libraries and Press faculty and staff, there’s also some pretty cool quotes. Here’s one:

“Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life. Libraries change lives for the better.”  — Sidney Sheldon

Due to a transition to a new courier vendor, there will be interruptions to deliveries of Summit and some Interlibrary Loan (ILL) book requests beginning June 26.  The new courier service will begin on July 5, but we expect some processing delays due to the number of items that will be delivered.

We know how important Summit and ILL services are to your learning, research, and teaching endeavors, and we will strive to minimize the length of the interruption once deliveries begin again on July 5. 

The new courier service, Expak, promises to offer faster delivery times, tracking features, and improved customer service.  We are looking forward to working with Expak to improve your experience with Summit and ILL services.

Think it would be cool to be able to access books printed before 1700?

Now you can.

Students and faculty can now browse, read, mark up, download and mine thousands of texts originally printed from 1473 to 1700 in the United Kingdom and elsewhere using the Early English Books Online (EEBO) database that's now available through OSU Libraries. 

Access to the Early English Books Online collection is as easy as typing “EEBO” in the search box on the Libraries homepage at http://osulibrary.oregonstate.edu and logging in with your OSU password. 

From the first book published in English through the age of Spenser and Shakespeare, this incomparable collection contains more than 130,000 titles and more than 17 million scanned pages. Scholars have long treasured this collection, and now it’s accessible online. 

“I am thrilled that we are finally able to offer EEBO to the faculty and students of Oregon State University,” says Laurel Kristick, Collection Assessment and Science Librarian at OSU Libraries. “We‘ve been working on this for almost a decade and finally had the donor funds we needed to purchase it.” 

The EEBO database now contains page images of virtually every work printed in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and British North America and works in English printed elsewhere from 1473–1700. In addition to English, EEBO covers more than 30 languages from Algonquin to Welsh. More than 200 libraries worldwide have contributed to the EEBO collection. 

The content covers science, literature, philosophy, politics, religion, geography and all other areas of human endeavor, including topics from sword fighting to witchcraft and gardening manuals. The collections have been most widely used by scholars of English, linguistics and history, although these resources also include core texts in art, women’s studies, the history of science, education, religious studies, math, law and music. 

The following are but a small sampling of the authors whose works are included: Erasmus, Shakespeare, King James I, Marlowe, Galileo, Caxton, Chaucer, Malory, Boyle, Newton, Locke, More, Milton, Spenser, Bacon, Donne, Hobbes, Purcell, Behn and Defoe.

Besides browsing and reading through these early English books, users can search through the entire corpus. Searching for keywords and themes is possible because the text has been encoded with Extensible Markup Language (XML). To accompany the page images, accurate transcriptions have been created of many thousands of the works in order to aid researchers of all levels.
