|News from the Oscar Rennebohm Library
We had over 30 people attend gaming night, including students, faculty, staff, and some community members. All had a great time! We've posted a few photos on our facebook page.
Oscar Rennebohm Library is participating in International Games Day, a celebration of games taking place in libraries worldwide, and we want you to invite you to join us!
Gaming activities will be taking place on Friday, November 14 in the library from 6pm to midnight.
There will be open gameplay with rooms available for board games, card games, and video games. Attendees are more than welcome to bring their own favorites. This is an event for the whole community so feel free to bring a friend!

With the network issues the Edgewood campus has been experiencing, connections to article databases has been slower than usual. Unfortunately this slowness can be amplified for off-campus users (their browser requests must go from their computer, to Edgewood, to the databases, back to Edgewood, and finally to their computer).The ITSO team at Edgewood is working to resolve all of the network issues as soon as possible.In the meantime, if you're unable to access a needed
article, or would like some assistance, use the Ask a Librarian links on the library home page to contact us and we will do what
we can to help.
