Welcome to the OSU Libraries News and Events page!

The Center for Research Libraries has announced its most recent purchases of primary source materials. It's an eclectic mix, ranging from Missionary Society Papers to facsimiles of significant post-war Japanese manga artists to the 1939-1949 issues of The Sacramento Bee, a newspaper known for its support of workers' rights and environmental protection. The complete list of new purchases is available at http://www.crl.edu/sites/default/files/attachments/pages/pp10purchases.pdf.

Through the OSU Libraries' membership, OSU faculty, staff and students have access to the complete CRL collection, which includes the largest collection of circulating newspapers in North America, nearly 40,000 foreign journals rarely held in U.S. libraries, and major microform and paper collections from around the world. CRL materials are loaned to member libraries for 90 days with unlimited 90-day renewals.

To learn more about CRL and the collections available to you, visit http://www.crl.edu/.

But…aren’t all the books in the library free?

Yes, but this is a copy of Greg Mortenson’s Three Cups of Tea that is yours to keep.

What’s the catch? These books are for COCC and OSU-C students who are interested in participating in the upcoming Season of Nonviolence programming. There are guest speakers, book discussion groups, and even a visit from the author on the calendar. Swing by the library’s circulation desk with your student ID, sign up for a discussion group and pick up a copy of the book to read over winter break.

Supplies are limited. Questions? Contact Librarian Kate Gronemyer kate [dot] gronemyer [at] osucascades [dot] edu

Thanks in large part to your feedback, OSU Libraries has been able to identify the necessary cancellations that will allow us to meet the Library’s expected budget shortfalls in fiscal year 2009-2010.

The list of cancellations identified for FY2009-2010 is now on the OSU Libraries’ Collections Review page. These reductions will take effect on January 2010.

You may remember that we also identified titles that would be cut in fiscal year 2010-11. Given the budgetary uncertainty for OUS and/or OSU, we may have to cancel some of these titles earlier than we anticipate. We will notify you in the event that this reduction needs to be made.

Thank you for the assistance you provided in helping with the difficult decisions we have had to make in our current budgetary situation. We will be continuing our work with the University of Oregon and with other OUS institutions to reduce duplication, share access and develop strategies to reduce the impact of the budget.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Loretta Rielly, Head of Collection Development, Faye Chadwell, Associate University Librarian for Collections and Content Management, or your subject librarian.

The OSU Libraries has recently added nearly 80 e-books from EBook Library (EBL) and the Springer Computer Science Ebook Collection.

EBL is an academic and research collection with nearly 200 participating academic and university presses. Readers can search for specific information in a book or leisurely browse contents online. One of the benefits of this collection is that more than one person can use a book simultaneously, eliminating the need to purchase multiple copies for heavily-used or books faculty want to put on Reserve.

The Springer Computer Science EBook Collection includes monographs, proceedings, and lecture note published since 1995. Subjects covered include Computer Communication Networks, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Software Engineering and more. Look for titles marked with the green box.

Search for ebooks from EBL, NetLibrary, California Digital Library and elsewhere in the OSU Libraries Catalog by limiting your search to "Electronic Resources."
