Featured: Connecting Communities through History
There are many stories to be told that connect our shared experiences within the greater Los Angeles community. By bringing history into the lives of the San Fernando Valley residents we strengthen our shared knowledge and build lasting connections.
The Oviatt Library has been selected to receive a competitive Latino Americans: 500 Years of History grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association (ALA). The grant supports public programs during the upcoming academic year from September 2015 through April 2016.
Thanks and Recognition: Tony Gardner
You are invited to join University President Dianne F. Harrison, Library Dean Mark Stover, and a variety of Oviatt friends and donors as they gather together to celebrate and say thank you to Tony Gardner. A longtime love for materials printed on hand operated presses, coupled with his continued affection for the Oviatt Library, inspired librarian emeritus and CSUN alumnus Tony Gardner to give back in a highly impactful way.
Message from the Dean: The Impact of Interconnectivity
Woodrow Wilson was a political science professor, president of Princeton University, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, and president of the United States. In one of his presidential campaigns he used the slogan “The pen is mightier than the sword,” which should endear him to all those who love libraries. But it is another quote from Woodrow Wilson that I want to focus on in this dean’s message.
