Stop by the 2nd and 3rd floors of Hamersly anytime we’re open to see the summer exhibits:

–>Into the Shadow (And Out Again): Posters from the Presidential Plenary of the Academic Excellence Showcase, in the 2nd floor gallery

–>Oregon in Paintings: Watercolors created while the artist was a visiting scholar at WOU, June 23rd – Aug 4th, 2017 in the 3rd floor galleries

Getting Summit materials over the summer

reading in the sunDid you know that you can arrange to have your Summit requests delivered to another Summit library?

To do so, visit the circulation desk of the library where you’d like to pick up your Summit materials and ask to be “adopted” as a Summit Visiting Patron. Once you go through this process you can request Summit materials through either Hamersly or this other Summit library.

Help us test out our new & improved catalog

TestFrom May 1st through August 15th, the library will be beta testing a new interface for its catalog, called Primo Explore, and you can help!

Primo Explore provides the same one-stop searching functionality for books and e-books, videos, articles, digital media, and other library materials as our current Primo catalog, with an updated interface and functionality.

Please give it a try and send us any feedback about Primo Explore using this Google Form, or e-mail problems directly to Stewart Baker at bakersc@wou.edu.

The new interface will replace our existing one in August, just before the start of the 2017-2018 school year. We appreciate your help in testing our new interface, Primo Explore!
