Celebrate your civic pride by learning more about the history of the Constitution and U.S. Government.
There are two new exhibits for you to enjoy in Hamersly this term – see details below. You are also invited to a reception celebrating the new exhibits on Wed., Oct 4th, 4:00-5:30pm, here at the library. We hope to see you then.
–>What Remains Is Poetry
An interactive exhibit that explores the history and creation of erasure poetry.
Curated by Zoe Strickland, WOU English Student, 2nd floor gallery
–>In The Picture, Revisited
A visual representation of an analysis of ableism in children’s literature.
Created by Dr. Chloe Hughes, WOU Education Professor, 3rd floor galleries
It may be summer, but there’s still lots of good stuff going on at Hamersly. We have two new exhibits for you to enjoy and will be hosting an exhibit reception on Monday, June 26th from 3-5pm. We hope to see you there!
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
Did 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.
From 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 email@example.com.
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!
Have you ever wished the library would just text you when the items you order through Summit or interlibrary loan are ready to pick up? If so, you’re in luck because now we can! To sign up for texts from Hamersly:
1. Log in to your account in Primo
2. Click on My Account–>Personal Settings–>Edit Details
3. Select the checkbox next to the ‘SMS Wanted’ field and enter your phone number in the ‘SMS Number’ field.
4. Click Update, and that’s it! You will now get text notifications from the library. If you ever want to stop getting texts, just follow the same process and uncheck the box.
Please note: this is an opt-in service and is in addition to the current email notification system, not in place of it.

Check out our Textbooks Guide for options to buy, rent, and borrow textbooks for your classes this term.
You’ll also find info about where to sell your textbooks back once you’re done with them.
How much does printing cost? A single page (one side) of a black & white printout costs 1 print credit. A single color page (one side) printout costs 5 print credits. Students receive 225 print credits per term.
How do I know how many print credits I have? Log in to the WOU Portal and your balance will be displayed on your homepage.
How do I buy more print credits? Purchase additional credits through WolfWeb under the Student Menu. They start at 50 credits for $2.50 and go up from there. When you buy additional credits they are immediately available for use.
What if I don’t use all of my print credits? Whatever credits you don’t use roll over to the next term. However, accounts are wiped clean before each Fall term begins, and everyone starts again with 225 print credits.
