Library Computers Fall Schedule

What's Open?

The Learning Commons and Instructional Computer Labs A, B, and C on the Main Floor are available for student use during regular library hours unless they are being used for library instruction.

Where have all the Bestsellers Gone?

Big changes are going on around the Library’s Main Floor with the construction of our fabulous new Learning Commons.  One question that has been coming up is: where can I find the Bestseller collection?  The Bestseller collection has been moved from our Main Floor up to the 2nd Floor during construction.  The collection can be found right behind the floor map on the 2nd floor past the public computer stations.

Welcome back from Spring Break!

If you’ve visited the Oviatt recently, you may have noticed that change is in the air. Have you heard about our exciting renovation plans? Over the summer we’re going to be transforming our Reference Room on the first floor into a Learning Commons! Construction in certain areas will start in April and May and we should be up and running by the start of the Fall Semester.

Communication to University Faculty & Staff: April 02, 2013

The coming months are going to be very exciting at the Oviatt Library. As you may remember, we sent a letter out to you back in August 2012, detailing how the Oviatt is scheduled to undergo some substantial renovations to its first floor in order to build our highly anticipated Learning Commons.

Communication to University Faculty - RIS Collection Plan: August 29, 2012

The Oviatt Library Faculty has been informed by Dean Mark Stover and Provost Harry Hellenbrand that there is a good probability that we will be making some substantial renovations and programmatic changes to the Library in the upcoming years. The first anticipated change will affect the first floor of the Library, which we are planning to convert to a learning commons environment.

Communication to University Faculty: July 03, 2012

I wanted to take a moment to update you on some of the changes that are being planned for the Oviatt Library.

We are very busy gearing up for a renovation project that will align the Oviatt with current trends in academic libraries by transforming our space from a book-centered to a learning-centered environment.  During Phase One of the project we will build a “Learning Commons” that will be located on the first floor of the Oviatt.
