Last spring, almost 1,000 of you responded to the library’s survey evaluating the use and quality of the our collections, services, and facilities. That’s 584 WOU students, 143 faculty, 128 members of staff, and 100 graduate students. Thank you so much for your participation!
Pages 1-3 summarize the survey itself, basic demographics, overall results, improvements made since the survey, and what’s next. Pages 4-7 are single-page reports of results from specific groups: undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff.

Need to access your H drive from off campus? Need to use specialized programs such as SAS, SPSS, or Photoshop for a class assignment? You can access all these from almost any computer by using a virtual connection. There are two computing environments to connect to: VDI and the Terminal Server.
VDI has newer versions of the Windows operating system and the Microsoft Office suite of programs. Some specialized software lives on VDI, while other software is only on the Terminal Server. Decide which option is best suited to your needs with this chart:

Are you are working on a video or digital project for a class or student organization? Using a microphone for the voice over, instead of relying on the microphone on your iPhone or video camera, will make a world of difference in the final project.
The library has several different types of microphones that you can check out and that will lend a professional touch to your finished product. Learn more:
Are you filming something for a class project, your student organization, or just for your own artistic expression? Well, unless you’re going for a Blair Witch Project-style camera shake, you will want a tripod.
The library has both floor stand and tabletop tripods in several different sizes and styles that you can check out! Learn more:
Have you ever tried to hold your phone against your ear and type at the same time? It is difficult. Talking on speakerphone can solve this, but what if you’re in a public place or your roommate is asleep? That’s where these headsets can really come in handy.
They’re perfect for things like group calls and online classes – any scenario where you might want to talk and type at the same time. Plus, the sound quality is much better than speakerphone. Learn more:
Need to watch a movie for class, but you left your laptop at home? Maybe you don’t have a laptop, or your laptop doesn’t have a DVD player? Whatever the scenario, the library can help. We have portable DVD players that you can check out for up to 4 days and take wherever you’d prefer to watch your movie. Learn more:
