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.

Dean Mark Stover

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.
