Making studying easier during remote learning

Among the services the library normally provides are scheduled group study rooms and quiet space away from family and domestic responsibilities. With students under stay-at-home orders and the current closure of the Hamersly Library building, we’ve put together some ideas to help you with these study needs: White Noise | Virtual Study Groups | Physical [more…]

Our building is closed but our services are still strong

In accordance with the Governor's Executive Orders 20-12 and 20-09, the Library building will be closed to the public at the beginning of spring term. However, we are dedicated to serving the WOU community and our remote services are strong! To ensure your academic success, Hamersly Library is continuing and expanding our remote services while the library building is closed to public access. Please continue reading to learn about our remote library hours and services.

Remote services still available

Due to the Governor’s most recent order, our building is no longer accessible to the public. We will continue to provide support for research and instruction, as well as offer computer equipment for checkout in a variety of ways. We’re also online weekdays 8AM-5PM and available by phone or email 10AM-3PM during spring break. Please [more…]

Hotspot Checkout

3/30/20: WOU’s Library & Academic Innovation has ordered additional hotspots to facilitate the teaching and learning of Spring Term coursework. We expect them to arrive the first part of this week. As soon as we receive them we will begin distribution of them according to the waitlist, below. To view the waitlist form in a new window, use this link instead.   Sprint: These hotspots will provide unlimited data on the Sprint network. Please find your location on the Nationwide Coverage to determine if you can access data.  Verizon: A very limited number of Verizon-network hotspots are on backorder. They are due to arrive 4/24. Find your location on Verizon’s interactive map (scroll down on the resulting page.)   These two networks are the only ones we can gain hotspots for at this time. Because we will have far more Sprint hotspots than Verizon hotspots, we are holding the Verizon hotspots for people who cannot access the Sprint network.   As with all other materials available from the Library, WOU is covering the cost of these hotspots, with no expense passed on to the borrower. They have unlimited data.

WOU’s Giving Day
