Intellectual Engagement
We enhance the learning experience of 
OSU students through our teaching endeavors
and support for undergraduate research.  Every 
fall we play a vital role in helping new students
make valuable connections on campus and 
transition successfully to life at OSU.  In the fall 
of 2012, during OSU’s Connect Week, we offered 
new students a fun opportunity to sharpen their 
tracking skills to find evidence of the big‐ footed 
hominoid Sasquatch while  learning how to use 
the Valley Library. 
In partnership with the Libraries Advisory Council, we sponsored the 
7
th
annual Undergraduate Library Research Award.  This award recognizes OSU 
students’ use of library resources to demonstrate outstanding scholarship.  In 
2012, the Program awarded $1000 each to 
Ingrid Ockert, AnnaRose Adams, and 
co‐winners, Thea Matos and Lauren Graebner .
We regularly engage with students to identify their evolving needs. We 
respond by continually updating our spaces to create excellent learning 
spaces.  In the summer of 2012, as a result of students’ requests, we 
upgraded all the seating in the Valley Library. We also purchased new tables and 
chairs for the 5
th
floor in the Reading Room of the Special Collections and 
Archives Research Center.  The results paid off. Once again, OSU students 
selected the Valley Library as 
the Best Place to Study on campus
in 2013.
