Welcome to the 2014 fall semester, Matadors! We are happy to see you and hope to provide you with assistance as you acclimate to the new school year. Oviatt librarians are available at our Reference Desk almost every hour we are open. Feel free to stop by; say hello; and get informational support.
We also are planning several fun activities at the Library during the upcoming weeks. The Cited at the Oviatt blog will continue to post about these events so stay tuned for information about an event in late September. However, this week we begin a Banned Books themed Bookmark Artwork Contest that will run until September 10. Current CSUN students have the opportunity to design a one-sided bookmark with a banned books theme. The winner’s design will be printed into bookmarks we will distribute later in September.
