the Friends of
the Otterbein College Courtright Memorial Library.
Calling all Faculty
Please help the library by participating in a survey regarding scholarly reading.
We hope to determine the importance of print and electronic resources to faculty at Otterbein. We at the Courtright Memorial Library feel this is an appropriate time to examine current information seeking and reading patterns of faculty to ensure that the journal collection continues to meet the needs and requirements of readers. Pilot tests show that your questionnaire should take less than ten minutes to complete. If you have any questions or comments about the survey, please contact Lois Szudy. Thank you in advance for your time and your input.

Art From Haiti on Display
|Art from Haiti
is on display in the library until November 20.
The paintings and metal work are from
the personal collection of Dr. Tracee and Robert Karaffa of Granville
founders of Healing Art Mission, a charity that supports a
medical clinic, a primary school, and a clean water project in Haiti.
In addition they are building
a library and need books, particularly French language ones. The
Karaffas and other volunteers travel to Haiti four times a year to spend a
week working with Haitian doctors at the clinic and delivering pharmaceutical
drugs carried in large plastic containers. On their return
trip, the Karaffas bring back Haitian artwork created by contemporary
artists and street vendors.
The oil paintings, metalwork
and ceramics on display are typical of the art auctioned each May
in Granville by the Healing Art Mission.
Ohio Web Library
More than 50 of the electronic research resources that are available to all students, faculty and staff at OhioLINK member institutions are also available to all Ohioans.
This core collection of electronic research resources, called the Ohio Web Library, is provided to all Ohio residents by Libraries Connect Ohio, a collaborative effort of Ohio's library organizations.
Although Ohio Web Library
is already incorporated into the library's list of available resources
for your use, keep in mind that these resources will also be available
to you after you graduate via any Ohio school or public library.
In addition, all Ohio residents, including your parents, friends
and children, can also use the Ohio Web Library collection
of magazines, newspapers, journal articles, research databases and
much more. Visit www.ohioweblibrary.org
