Submit your photos for Week@WOU

Week @ WOUThe entire WOU community is invited to submit campus images taken during the week of January 21 – 27, 2013 for a spring-term exhibit at the Hamersly Library. Image categories are

  • Places (buildings, campus spaces)
  • Activities (performance, lecture, service, routine tasks)
  • People (students, staff, faculty, administrators)

Make your plans now for scenes you want to shoot! See invitational flyer for full submission guidelines and exhibit information.

All I see is the article’s summary–where’s the whole article?

Sometimes full articles are available directly from the library databases.  But in many instances, there is no link to the full text of the article, and you only have the summary (or even just the citation information).  This is when you use the  Find it @ WOU button.

Find it @ WOUSee our Find it @ WOU tutorial to discover how we’ll link you to the full text in our electronic sources, to our print sources & Scan & Deliver service, to Articles OnDemand, and to Interlibrary Loan, as appropriate.


eReader Petting Zoo this Monday

Monday, Nov. 19, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.eReader next to stack of paper books
Hamersly Library lobby

The eReader Petting Zoo allows you time in a non-commercial setting to poke around several brands and formats of eBook devices and to discuss their pros and cons.  (Reminder: holiday shopping is imminent.)

We’ll have a variety of devices for you to play with

  • Kindle, 6″ E Ink Display
  • NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight
  • Kobo
  • The new Kindle Fire HD 7″
  • Google Nexus 7
  • iPad 2

Also, we will schedule our ebooks and ereader workshop in January, during which we’ll detail how to download library ebooks onto your smartphone, tablet, or eReader (possibly a brand new one from the holidays?).  These will be reprised from the workshop first held during Faculty Week 2012, but we’ll have focused sessions for iPad/iPhone owners, for Kindle owners, and general sessions for owners of other devices. You can also consult our Ebooks @ WOU guide and consult with us if you have problems.
