Message from the Dean: Everything Oviatt

One of the things that I love most about being a librarian and library administrator at Cal State Northridge is the knowledge that every day will bring something new and exciting into my life.  This issue of the Oviatt Library E-Newsletter exemplifies that feeling of sheer exhilaration when I think about the wide variety of initiatives that the Library is involved with this year.
