Welcome to a New Academic Year!
We’ve been hard at work in the Libraries getting ready for you and are happy to have to here. Here are just some highlights of what we’ve been up to:
- Laptop Tables
Throughout the Beeghly and Hobson Libraries, you will find handy new adjustable, mobile laptop tables that will make it easier to use your own tablets and laptops. Move them around, and make yourself at home!
- Updates, Updates, Updates
Several of our research tools have been updated and have more contemporary, user-friendly interfaces. Take a tour of CONSORT, Summon 2.0, LibGuides, OWU Reach (formerly ILLiad) and E-Reserves. Phew, lots of changes.
- Stacks Beatification!
While you were away, the stacks weren’t quiet. The N’s (our lovely collection of art books) on the third floor have been organized by call number and size and are more discoverable. On the lower level, the bound journals have been shifted, the walls painted, and study carrels rearranged.
- New Computers, MFDs (All-in-one Printer/Scanner), and . . . . Stay tuned.
Like to study in the Internet Café? You’ll find 8 new desktop computers with the latest operating system. And in the Info Commons, you’ll find new MFDs, making scanning and printing that much better. Stayed tuned about new ways to scan with your own phones and tablets. More Bring-Your-Own-Device convenience.
Just a reminder. Beeghly Library is open on Sunday, 8/24, from 5:00-9:00 PM. Get a jumpstart on your scanning, printing, reading, checking out our various study areas, or catching up with friends.
Best of luck for a wonderful academic year. All members of the library staff are here to help make your time at OWU productive and successful. Don’t hesitate to contact us.
