Hi All, there is nothing new here at Old Westbury.  We have two librarians that have become embedded instructors in upper level courses: sociology and business. The library's renovation is ongoing and is already a few months behind.

Happy New Year! We are still in the process of the library renovation. Also, our Education Librarian will be demonstrating a class she taught in the fall as an embedded librarian for an upper level course. I will have more information for our next update.

There is nothing new to report. We are still in the process of the library renovation. The school was closed from 10/29-11/5 due to the hurricane. The campus is still dealing with damage.

Curt Friehs' our Business Librarian, taught a workshop at the Nassau County Library Association this summer titled "Business Information for the Layperson: Part II".  It was a 2.5 hour long presentation on June 15, 2012. He also gave a presentation to Workforce Partnership on June 21, 2012 on using library resources for job hunting.
Werner Sbaschnik recently created a new collection of media equipment for our catalog. The collection includes film and other media apparatuses for students to borrow for various projects.
We are in the process of our library renovation. We are still open as many hours, as they are breaking concrete and replacing windows. It has been an eventful semester so far. As of now, students do not have access to our CMC (education) library. Also we no longer have media equipment for students to view films that have been placed on reserve. the student computers can not play dvds. This is just the first phase and there are two more to go! If you would like to see the progress, please refer to the libguide created by the library director, Stephen Kirkpatrick.

However with all of this going on - students are still coming and using the library.

Thank you, Antonia DiGregorio

We are busy preparing for the library renovation. Phase one should begin shortly. We are in the process of removing old books, changing some of the reference collection to circulation, removing periodicals that are available online as well as removing old VHS videos.
Classes are not being scheduled in the library for the summer and fall.
Before the semester ended our business librarian, Curt Friehs did offer workshops for our business databases and another workshop in conjunction with career services, which were viewed as successful.
