Welcome to the OSU Libraries News and Events page!

Mary Markland is the new head librarian for OSU’s Guin Library at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport. She moved into the position at the Guin Library in May. 

The head of the Guin Library oversees the library facilities, staff and services in support of teaching and research at the Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC), which includes not only OSU-affiliated users but also state, federal and visiting scientists. OSU plans to significantly expand the Marine Science Center in the future, and this position will have a unique opportunity to shape the development of library services for that initiative. 

“I’m excited to be able to combine my lifelong interest in the marine sciences with my professional career in library science,” said Markland, and “I look forward to the collaborative opportunities provided by HMSC and the Marine Studies Initiative.” 

Markland was formerly a librarian at the University of North Dakota Health Sciences Library. She earned a BS in Biology with a French minor from Iowa State University and an MA in Library and Information Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is just the third head librarian in HMSC’s 50-year history. Markland succeeds Janet Webster, who retired in January 2015 after 25 years in the position, and Marilyn Potts Guin, librarian from 1976 until her death in 1989, for whom the Guin Library is named. 

“The OSU Guin Library is central to HMSC’s collaborative, interdisciplinary culture of marine research, especially as OSU launches the Marine Studies Initiative,” said Bob Cowen, HMSC Director. “We look forward to an expanded role for the library, and I am excited to have Mary join us now, bringing her perspective into the planning process.”

Doing research using federal grants? The U.S. Office of Science and Technology Policy mandated in 2013 that federal agencies with research and development budgets over $100 million develop plans for providing public access to the research publications and data that result from grants. Many agencies have begun publishing their implementation plans. A new library webpage provides information for faculty about these plans and related support services offered by the library. 

The National Institutes of Health, Department of Energy, Veterans Administration, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are already accepting article deposits. OSU authors that are funded by the first three listed agencies may use the OSU OA Article Deposit Form to submit articles to the ScholarsArchive@OSU institutional repository. The library will then deposit the articles in appropriate repositories in compliance with those agencies’ requirements, and OSU faculty will be notified when the deposits are completed. 

The library is working with other agencies to implement third party (library) deposit services to agency repositories. As those services become available, the library's webpage on Federal Public Access Plans will be updated.  

Please feel free to forward any of this information that you deem useful to colleges and departments. Faculty may contact Andrea Wirth, Michael Boock, Amanda Whitmire or Erin Clark at the Valley Library with any questions, and one of them would be happy to meet with faculty to discuss compliance details.

You’re invited to the launch of the new book, The Courtiers’ Anatomists, on Monday, June 8, from 4:00-5:00 p.m. The event is taking place on the fifth floor of The Valley Library in the Special Collections and Archives Research Center.

 

Anita Guerrini, a faculty member in OSU’s School of History, Philosophy and Religion, is launching her book that examines the revolutionary practice of seventeenth-century anatomy in Louis XIV's Paris. The Courtiers' Anatomists explores the relationships between empiricism and theory, between humans and animals, as well as the origins of the natural history museum and the relationship between science and other cultural activities including art, music and literature.
