New exhibit: Oakland University in 1967- Kresge Library lobby
In 1967, OU was only 8 years old and growing fast. Student activism was developing, fueled by the civil rights movement and anti-Vietnam war protests. In that context, in Fall 1967 44 OU students went to Hong Kong on a study abroad tour. This exhibit documents their experience in those agitated times (lobby of Kresge Library, June 20-August 20, 2014).
In memory of Naim Sahyoun, 1942-2014
On March 3, 2014, we in the OU Libraries were saddened to learn of the sudden passing of our well loved and respected colleague, Naim Sahyoun. Throughout the years, Naim demonstrated a remarkable level of integrity and compassion, and a genuine affection for OU's students, faculty, and staff --- affection which given back to him greatly in return. Naim, you were our true friend, colleague, and mentor, and we will miss you very much!
