Welcome to the OSU Libraries News and Events page!

OSU Libraries & Press are pleased to announce a pilot Open Access Fund that provides a means for OSU faculty authors to pay reasonable publishing fees charged by open access journals. It is intended for authors who do not have access to funds for open access publishing fees from other sources. Alongside the University's open access policy, the fund is designed to heighten the visibility and accessibility of OSU scholarship and to support faculty and their graduate student coauthors in all disciplines who choose to publish in open access journals that require article processing charges.

 

See http://cdss.library.oregonstate.edu/oa_fund for additional information about the fund, eligibility requirements, and the application form.

Rachel’s House is based on a series of interviews and creative writing sessions done with women and the workers who support them at Rachel’s House in Columbus, OH. Rachel’s House is unique amongst rehab programs in the USA, perhaps the world, in that it has an exceptionally high success rate of 86%. It receives no state funding because it is run by a faith-based charity, Lower Lights Ministry.

Glasgow, Scotland-based dramatist, Nicola McCartney, spent two weeks at Rachel’s House in June 2012 and again in April 2013 and kept in touch with participants over an 18 month period. The writer worked with participants and staff to tell their story of Rachel’s House. The first reading of the play was done in May 2014 in the Columbus, OH area.

We are proud to present this West Coast premiere reading of Rachel’s House here in the Valley Library's Special Collections & Archives Research Center.

This reading is produced with the support of the University Theatre and the office of the Vice-Provost for Student Engagement.

Readers include: Trischa Goodnow, Amanda Granrud, Robin Pappas, Dawn Schiller, Kryn Freehling-Burton, Charlotte Headrick and Anna Mahaffey with assistance from Dr. Jade McCutcheon.

 

Performance dates and times are:

Thursday, February 26th at 4:00PM

&

Friday, February 27th at 7:30PM

OSU library faculty were awarded two innovation grants as part of OSU Information Services’ new Learning Innovation Grants program.  

 

Congratulations to  Steve Van Tuyl, Margaret Mellinger, and Natalia Fernandez.

 

Steve and Margaret have received an $8,550 grant to develop  a 3D model repository pilot. Their project will support faculty teaching and student learning and augment the Library's current 3D services. The plan is to develop a repository for learning object packages that include 3D models and associated curricular information. The repository will seek to facilitate the process of creation and curation of 3D models as learning objects, both for the OSU community and for higher education as a whole.

 

Natalia Fernandez shared her $7000 grant with Interdisciplinary Studies graduate student Mike Jager. Together they are launching the Oregon Multicultural Archives iBooks development project. This program will give OSU undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to collaborate with the Oregon Multicultural Archives to write and publish iBooks. The iBooks will feature the histories and current activities of two Portland-based performing arts groups--Milagro, a Latino based theatre company, and the Obo Addy Legacy Project, a West African dance and music group. The books will showcase materials from their archival collections—documents, photos, video, and audio recordings.

New today! The Library's "Find-a-Friend" in the library web app. What is it? You can use Find-A-Friend to schedule and post library and other on-campus meet-ups using any device you'd like! You can create a Chemistry meet-up for next week and invite your classmates; let everyone in your German class know that you'll be studying every Thursday on the 4th floor starting at 2; or tell your study group that you've run off to take a call, but that you've reserved a study room with a window on the 1st floor.
