Celebrating Books by OSU Authors

Join us on January 31 from 2-4 p.m. in the Peggy V. Helmerich Browsing Room for the second annual "Celebrating Books by OSU Authors." The reception honors OSU faculty, emeriti, staff and students who have authored, co-authored or edited a book or who have published creative works such as musical compositions, art exhibit catalogs or audio recordings. Guests will have the opportunity to talk to authors, and several books and CDs by honorees will be for sale.

The purpose of "Celebrating Books by OSU Authors" is to recognize and honor these individuals' achievements, encourage academic dialogue and ensure that works by OSU authors are available to the University community by adding these pieces to the OSU Library's collection. This year's event will spotlight books and creative works published in 2006 and 2007. If your work falls into this category, submit the form at www.library.okstate.edu/forms/authors.htm. We will add you to the list of honorees.

Austin Lee Bird Phil Choo Anne-Marie Condacse Bob Darcy Sidney Ewing Jami Fullerton Todd Hubbard Deb Jordan Thomas Lanners Jason Lavery Lance A. Millis David Moll Ruth Mudroch Jennifer Paustenbaugh Angela Piehl David Peters Donna Rhea William Seagall Ramesh Sharda Ravi Sheorey Marcella Sirhandi Rebecca te Velde Jean Van Delinder Martin Wallen Susan Weir John Wooley

Tell Your Students: Textbooks are on Reserve

Many students first discover Library resources and services because a professor brought it to their attention. This month we encourage you to tell your students about textbooks on reserve.

The OSU Library has expanded the number of textbooks available for check out to students for the fourth semester in a row. This spring, required textbooks for classes of 125 or more students, or costing $125 or more were added to the Library's collection. The textbooks are on two-hour reserve and available to be checked out.

For more information about the Library's textbook program, contact Richard Paustenbaugh at (405) 744-5271 or richard.paustenbaugh@okstate.edu.
