We made it through! Fall Term is officially over. High fives all around, everybody. Let’s celebrate with a week off filled with food, family, and turkey-induced naps.
This term was a big one here at the OWHL. We launched the Nest and a corresponding speaker series (NestED for the win!). We welcomed our new director and said farewell to a beloved librarian who’s off to start another exciting adventure. Our Instructional Services team taught over 100 information literacy, citation, and research skills classes.
The front doors also lock automatically now. See? Very big, very busy term.
We hope that you all have a restful, restorative break over the next week and a half. We’ll be back on December 3rd to begin the Winter Term. Here are some fun links to carry you through in the meantime.
