Welcome to the OSU Libraries News and Events page!

Through our membership in the Greater Western Library Alliance (GWLA)*, OSU Libraries is pleased to be able to provide the OSU campus community with a subscription to the ASTM Standards and Engineering Digital Library.

Access: ASTM Standards and Engineering Digital Library (http://proxy.library.oregonstate.edu/login?url=http://enterprise.astm.org)

The Digital Library is a vast collection of industry-leading standards and technical engineering information. The Digital Library covers a broad range of engineering disciplines, including aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, environmental, geological, health and safety, industrial, materials science, mechanical, nuclear, petroleum, soil science, and solar engineering.

*GWLA is a consortium of 32 research libraries located across 17 Midwestern & Western states with common interests in programs related to scholarly communication, interlibrary loan, shared electronic resources, cooperative collection development, digital libraries, staff development and continuing education.

Back issues of the Journal of the Transportation Research Forum are now available online: http://journals.oregondigital.org/trforum. This is the first open access journal published as part of the OSU and UO Libraries new OJS@OregonDigital.org open access journal publishing service.

The new service uses the Public Knowledge Project’s free, open source software, Open Journal System (OJS), as a platform. This new service builds on already existing efforts at the two universities to support publication of other open access content such as journal articles, conference proceedings, newsletters, technical report series and open access monographs using ScholarsArchive@OSU and Scholars’ Bank (UO) open access repositories. OJS@OregonDigital.org supports the full cycle of journal publishing from article submission to archiving. The service:

  1. Takes advantage of modern web-based distribution mechanisms
  2. Increases the visibility of journal publications
  3. Avoids the fees and access restrictions associated with commercial publishers
  4. Reaches readers outside the journal’s core discipline and those without access to academic libraries or traditional research channels
  5. Ensures long-term stewardship and availability

You are invited to a reading and conversation with author Brian Doyle to celebrate the release of his novel, Mink River, this Thursday, December 2, at 7 p.m. at Troubadour Music Center, 521 SW 2nd Street, Corvallis.

Shari Ame of Three Fingered Jack will start the evening with some fiddle tunes, and then Brian will share stories from Neawanaka, the imaginary Oregon coastal village he brings to life so vividly that the Corvallis Gazette Times wonders “what took him so long to venture into the realm of fiction.” (read the story here http://bit.ly/h7rnpC)

The event is cosponsored by OSU Press, The Spring Creek Project, and Grass Roots Books & Music.

If you can’t make it to the reading, but you’re interested in sampling Mink River, check out the excerpts on pages 10 and 11 of the new issue of Oregon Quarterly here: http://www.oregonquarterly.com/winter2010/winter2010-digital.html

The University’s Corvallis campus is closing for the remainder of the day, effective at noon. Damage, smoke issues and other complications resulting from an electrical fire this morning in the university’s steam tunnels has caused widespread problems with electrical service, heating, smoke and network connectivity in a long and growing number of buildings.

In response to these issues, the Valley Library is closing at noon for the remainder of the day and will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday and Friday.
