New updates to Oregon Explorer, holiday season reminders, and BennyBuy training.
The Institute for Natural Resources and Oregon State University Libraries & Press, in partnership with a number of Oregon state agencies and universities, recently launched several new landing pages and map viewers on Forest Collaboratives, Sage-Grouse, and Hazards as part of the Oregon Explorer Natural Resources Digital Library. If you have students, faculty, programs, departments, or colleges that you think would be interested in any of these new web site or tools, please feel free to send them a link to this library news page or add relevant links to your libguides: http://osulibrary.oregonstate.edu/new-oregon-explorer-landing-pages-and-map-viewers-launched-forest-collaboratives-sage-grouse-and.
As the season of entertaining and gift giving kicks into high gear, the following tips and ideas are offered to support more sustainable celebrations.
The library is conducting a series of training on the new eProcurement system, BennyBuy. Shoppers have training on the 11th and 12th of December, and Requestors will be meeting with UABC on the 22nd for their training. The plan is for the library to go live with the system sometime in early January.
The Library Faculty Association Seminar Series is taking place on December 8th from 10-11:30 a.m. in the Willamette Classrooms. Come on by for some light refreshments, or tune in via Webex.

Can you guess the animal’s person?
This pupper is Monty, who is the love of a certain Max’s life. He was born in Wisconsin, and loves to chase shadows. A fine hobby.
Answers can be shared with colleagues and guessed among the office. Next week’s newsletter will have the owner’s name. Last week’s pet was Faye’s doggo, Tilly.
