Think you know about John Frederick Oberlin?

Take a look at the new online exhibit Oberlin's Namesake created by the Oberlin College Archives. This multimedia presentation not only includes original objects, letters, texts, photographs, and works of art in the Archives by and about Oberlin, but also brings together in one place a wealth of sources for further research, such as links to museums, local digital collections, and published sources available in the Oberlin College Library.

Of special note are video interviews about the J.F. Oberlin monument on campus with Paul Arnold, Emeritus Professor of Art (filming was done by John Light '11). The presentation was produced in Pachyderm, the web-authoring tool created by the New Media Consortium.

Got food? Not in the library (with a couple of exceptions), please.

Mid-terms = stress.
Stress relief = food!
Food = spills, trash, odors, and eventually, insects. :-(

Please remember that food is not permitted in the Art, Con, and Science Libraries. In Mudd, food is permitted only in Azariah's Café and A-Level study areas. Refresh your memory of the library's food and drink policy as midterms approach. Library staff, custodians, and fellow students appreciate your cooperation!
