Date- 16th of October

Time- 2PM-4PM.  Tours start at 2PM, and run every 15 minutes with the last one being at 3:15PM.

Anyone and everyone is welcome to come in and walk around the library.  The guided tours will be provided by some of the students who work at the library, with various short informational presentations spaced around the library so people can get a better sense of what we do and the services that we provide.  There will also be cake.

15 years ago, OSU friends and stakeholders received a transformative gift that resulted in the Valley Library.  Since that time the library has always been expanding, growing and evolving.  The original building, the Kerr Library,  was designed to house 750,000 volumes, which is half of what the Valley Library holds today.  The buildings of that time were constructed without computers or networks in mind, created to accommodate the Dewey Decimal System.  In 1996, construction began to build out the library and make room for the new technological advances of the day.  In 1999, that construction finished, giving us the Valley Library of today.  It has allowed us to use classrooms like the Autzen, which allow for interactive multi-media lessons, or the digitization effort that is on-going within the library.  These past 15 years have continued to change the face and function of the library, from a place to “a process – a process which brings people and ideas together to promote learning and the creation of new knowledge” (Melvin R. George- University Librarian 84-96).  Come see what we have done with the space and where we want to go in the next 15 years.

OSU Libraries and Press has released a new online exhibit on the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists, a group founded by Einstein in 1946 to educate the public on the dangers of nuclear warfare. The Special Collections and Archives Research Center at OSU holds a large collection of letters from American citizens to Einstein and the ECAS. They send donations, and express their feelings on the new atomic reality they found themselves living in. The letters have been digitized, and we ask for the public's help in transcribing them. Find a press release on the project here.
