Welcome Message from the Dean

Welcome to the Kresge Library and the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine Library!

The University Libraries, located at the heart of OU’s beautiful campus, are critical centers of learning in our educational community, providing access to scholarly information, research support, library instruction, and computing and study facilities. Here at the Libraries and through our extensive Web sites, you'll find important services and resources to help you meet your academic and research goals.  

I am pleased to have the chance to introduce myself to you as the new Dean of University Libraries, and I look forward to collaborating with faculty, staff and students to provide many innovative, successful, student-centered library services here at Oakland University. Please feel free to stop by and say “Hi,” or to drop me an email to let me know how the University Libraries can meet your educational and research needs.

We hope you will visit our Café and join us for many fun and educational events throughout the year – Pause for Puppies (to help relieve stress during final exams), our April Poetry Slam, and Authors at Oakland, to name just a few. I also want to encourage all of you to apply for the Frank Lepkowski Undergraduate Research in Writing Award. Stay tuned for details on submission deadlines for this year’s award!

This year we’re continuing to provide access to our physical and electronic resources and services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for those with current OU ID cards.  The Library has recently completed seating improvements throughout the Learning Commons on the second floor, and we are also working on expanding seating for the fourth floor.  In fact, throughout the Library enhancements to our spaces are in the works, with comfortable, inviting areas where you can study quietly or meet in groups.  

Just as networked systems and digital information have transformed our society, you'll discover that we continue to hone our services, collections, and facilities in creative ways to meet your information and research needs. We hope you'll consider the Library to be your educational partner and source of quality scholarship and learning during your time at OU.  Please let us know how we can assist you. 

Best wishes for a successful academic year!

Yours truly,
Stephen Weiter
Dean, University Libraries
