We apologize for the inconvenience. We were given a timeline that we are obligated to complete. Our current building will be torn down and right now is when we have the time and energy to do the work that needs to be done.
The current timeline puts the estimated completion of the project into Winter Term 2021. As multiple stakeholders and resources are involved in this process from across campus (including University Facilities), the timeline can shift. If the completion date is moved, this page will be updated.
The library's policies for the first floor have not changed. It is still the silent floor.
Noise-canceling headphones and study rooms are available for checkout at the circulation desk. For more information, you can call them at (541) 737-7254 or reserve a study room here. The 6th floor is also available and is the designated quiet floor. If none of these spaces suit your studying needs there is also this list of alternative study spaces on campus you can try.
Our Library Experience and Access Department (LEAD) has conducted hourly floor counts to give us an idea of the busy times of day on the first floor. Those responsible for the project have taken this data and chosen the best times that give the fewest disruptions and optimizes the work that needs to be done.
Oregon State University Libraries is a member of the Western Regional Storage Trust (WEST). WEST members support the preservation and access to the scholarly print record by making commitments to hold print journals for a minimum of 25 years. WEST members commit to sharing access to the journal content for any title archived at their institution through Interlibray Loan (ILL). OSUL is a bronze level archive committed to holding a small number of print journal titles that match our curricular and research areas. OSUL has supplied print journal titles to fill in gaps for larger archives in the WEST membership.
We are not throwing away books. All material purchased by OSULP is considered state property and thus giving away or selling of that material is restricted by University Policy. In this process, we work with Surplus to sell the books on behalf of Oregon State University, and with Recycling to sustainably recycle the print journals that can't be sold.
