Library eNewsletter - Fall 2018
Welcome to a new and improved electronic newsletter of the Oakland University Libraries. The purpose of this publication is to provide our friends and community partners with regular updates on library events and innovative programs, including highlights from our robust collections, facility enhancements, and a sampling of the first-rate work of my accomplished colleagues.


NEW library system and search interface
The University Libraries have implemented a new library catalog and management system to replace the 20-year old Voyager system implemented in 1997. This change includes a brand new search interface still branded as Library OneSearch, which is in fact a completely different system that replaces both the old library catalog and the old Library OneSearch.


Library Makerspace
The Makerspace in Kresge Library is for use by all students, faculty, and staff at Oakland University. This learning environment and collaboration space facilitates hands-on learning about new technologies. The space is cross discipline and encourages creativity, experimentation, design, and even fun.


Oakland University: The Campus History Series
The new book Oakland University: The Campus History Series is available for purchase at the Service Desk in Kresge Library. See more details and a few select photos in a recent article in Oakland Magazine.
