Welcome to the OSU Libraries News and Events page!

The Oregon State University Libraries Library Faculty Association invites all interested colleagues and friends to attend the December presentation of the 2012/2013 Seminar Series.  In 2011 four OSU library faculty members began a year-long qualitative investigation into eReader adoption by 30 of their OSU Libraries & Press colleagues. In Studying ourselves: eReaders and Adoption at OSU Libraries & Press, the investigators will present what they learned about themselves, the library, and their colleagues and patrons over the year. Findings and implications about eReaders and eReading adoption will be discussed. This study was generously funded by the Robert Lundeen Library Faculty Development Award.

 Presenters are: Laurie Bridges, Instruction and Emerging Technologies Librarian; Uta Hussong-Christian, Instruction and Science Librarian; Jane Nichols, Collection Development Librarian; and Evviva Weinraub, Director of Emerging Technologies and Services. Each has adopted an eReading device.

 The presentation will take place on December 14, 2012 from 10:00-11:30 a.m. in the Willamette Industries Seminar Rooms on the third floor of the Valley Library (VL 3622).

 Please contact Uta Hussong-Christian, uta.hussong-christian@oregonstate.edu, with any questions.

Rick Lugg of Sustainable Collection Services will visit the OSU Libraries & Press on Wednesday, December 5th, to present two workshops focused on library collections. The first session, “Rethinking Library Resources,” will take place in the Willamette rooms on the 3rd floor of the Valley Library, 10:00 – 11:30 am and is open to all interested OSU faculty, students, and staff. The presentation may also be viewed online at http://live.oregonstate.edu/workshop. The first workshop will cover three topics: the changing value of local print collections; alternatives to local print collections; and managing down local collections responsibly.

 The second session, “Data-Driven Deselection for Monographs: Achieving a Sustainable Print Collection,” will also take place in the Willamette rooms, 1:30 – 3:00 pm. This presentation, primarily aimed at library staff, will focus on several cases studies and examine processes and tools that can support data-driven deselection.

 Lugg’s presentations will serve as a catalyst for campus discussions of library collections and space. As the need for more individual and collaborative study space grows on campus, administrators look for ways to better use library space. Lugg notes: “Library shelves are increasingly full, and more books are being published than ever. Yet surprisingly few are being used.” For more information about Sustainable Collection Services, please link to http://sustainablecollections.com/.
