Welcome to the OSU Libraries News and Events page!

OSU library faculty were awarded two innovation grants as part of OSU Information Services’ new Learning Innovation Grants program.  

 

Congratulations to  Steve Van Tuyl, Margaret Mellinger, and Natalia Fernandez.

 

Steve and Margaret have received an $8,550 grant to develop  a 3D model repository pilot. Their project will support faculty teaching and student learning and augment the Library's current 3D services. The plan is to develop a repository for learning object packages that include 3D models and associated curricular information. The repository will seek to facilitate the process of creation and curation of 3D models as learning objects, both for the OSU community and for higher education as a whole.

 

Natalia Fernandez shared her $7000 grant with Interdisciplinary Studies graduate student Mike Jager. Together they are launching the Oregon Multicultural Archives iBooks development project. This program will give OSU undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to collaborate with the Oregon Multicultural Archives to write and publish iBooks. The iBooks will feature the histories and current activities of two Portland-based performing arts groups--Milagro, a Latino based theatre company, and the Obo Addy Legacy Project, a West African dance and music group. The books will showcase materials from their archival collections—documents, photos, video, and audio recordings. 

 

 

 

The OSU Valley Library is proud to announce our 2nd annual Book Collecting Contest! Sponsored in association with the Himes & Duniway Society, a group of book collecting enthusiasts in Oregon, this contest is meant to encourage students in the collection and enjoyment of their own personal libraries, to develop an appreciation for the special qualities of printed or illustrated works, and to read, research, and preserve these works for pleasure and scholarship. The collection can focus on any subject, and the contest is open to all full-time students. 1st prize is $1000, 2nd prize $500, and 3rd prize $250.

New today! The Library's "Find-a-Friend" in the library web app. What is it? You can use Find-A-Friend to schedule and post library and other on-campus meet-ups using any device you'd like! You can create a Chemistry meet-up for next week and invite your classmates; let everyone in your German class know that you'll be studying every Thursday on the 4th floor starting at 2; or tell your study group that you've run off to take a call, but that you've reserved a study room with a window on the 1st floor.
