Libraries Offer Virtual Study Rooms

We know the library is the place where you go to get work done. When you visit, you get inspired by seeing others study and you work harder. It’s an awesome place with incredible powers. While it’s unfortunate we can’t have the usual crowds of students studying in our libraries right now, that doesn’t mean you can't study with and be inspired by other students in a different way!

Beginning Monday, November 23, the Libraries will offer a new way to study with your peers. Open to all students, our virtual study rooms will offer a communal online space for friends, classmates, and fellow Bobcats to gather once again.

Libraries Releases Black Lives Matter and Anti-racism Guide

Ohio University Libraries has recently released a subject guide designed to connect patrons with free, informative resources about anti-racism and the Black Lives Matter movement. This guide comes in the wake of the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the innumerable other Black people who have been murdered in the United States.

The opening page of the Anti-racism and Black Lives Matter Resource Guide states, “Racism has no place on our campus or in our communities, but this guide is offered as a vehicle for understanding and grappling with the legacy of colonialism and white supremacy in our country, in higher education, within our academic disciplines.”

For more information and links to the guide , please continue on to the full article.

Because I care about Libraries. Your library, under the stewardship of an engaged, invested and dedicated staff, supports academic achievement, diversity, inclusiveness, and community!
Happy Library Workers Day to all the Great people who work at Alden Library!!! Thank you!!!
Spotted Jorma in the building. Wonder how many of you know who I am talking about - yes I am showing my age.
Tonight, FREE for ALL @ 7p, The Athena Cinema. This week we focus on Saving Mes Aynak archaeological sites and their possible demise due to mining rights! Then a look at Our Last Refuge, about the Blackfeet Nations and their battle to keep their land. Join us! We help sponsor the Sustainability Film Series, and have been since 2012.
20 years ago I donated an old song book contained all of Ohio University's original band music-including university football songs long forgotten! Alden library should do an exhibit or a Facebook of it! I think it's listed under my name as donor
