OSUL Planning

Browse this collection by:


In the spring of 2004, Joe Branin, Director of Libraries, put out a call for volunteers to initiate a process that would lead to a better understanding of how OSU students learn. It is intended that this new understanding will inform the design process of the Thompson Library renovation. This initiative was the result of a site visit in January 2004, by Sarah Thomas, University Librarian, Cornell University and Scott Bennett, Yale University Librarian Emeritus, in which Mr. Bennett challenged the OSU LIbraries to create a new paradigm for decision making of space and services.

This collection also holds materials from the OSUL 2013 grassroots planning initiative, including copies of all reports produced.
