Albus came for a visit....

Albus the squirrel visited the letterpress lab during Winter Term.  And he wasn't the only one there!

Where did the time go?

Today is the last day of Winter Term!  Starting tomorrow (Tuesday) and for the rest of the week, the Main Library will be closing at 5:30 each evening.  We return to our regular hours next Monday.  Let the semester begin!

SearchOhio unavailable Friday evening, January 27

For about an hour starting at 6:15 pm on January 27, the SearchOhio catalog will be off-line for maintenance.  Are you wondering why you should care?  Because SearchOhio is a catalog of 19 public libraries in Ohio and their holdings are available to you via a direct request, very similarly to the way you make OhioLINK requests.  Read more about SearchOhio while you're waiting for the catalog to be available!

Wikipedia et al. going dark tomorrow

Staring at midnight Wednesday, January 18th Wikipedia will "go dark" for 24 hours in protest of several anti-piracy bills before congress (even though the White House has pulled support for one of the bills).

Here's a CNN interview with Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales on this unprecedented political action.

Reddit, a popular social news website, also plans to go down, and one of the blog's administrators explains why they object to the pending legislation.
