Thanks to all who volunteered to serve on the four transformation implementation teams. We had more volunteers than openings but encourage you to stay engaged as the teams work through their charges. Please contact any team member if you would like to provide input.

Much of the library services on the library homepage (http://library.oregonstate.edu) work the same whether you are on or off campus. But, if you are not in Corvallis and would like to be reminded of what additional services you have available to you, use the “Ecampus” view of the library home page (see example 1).
This will take you to a view of the library homepage that assumes you are off campus (see example 2). The URL does not change in this process. Until you opt for another view (I’d recommend “Faculty” if you are on campus), each time you return to the library website, it will know you want the Ecampus view.
