OhioLINK Central Catalog Server Maintenance
Plan ahead: the OhioLINK Central Catalog is migrating to a new server on Thursday, July 7th, and will be temporarily offline from Noon to early evening. OhioLINK requests from the Central Catalog will not be available during the offline hours.
• The Case Catalog is not affected.
• OhioLINK databases, journals & electronic content will remain available for use.
Avoid network interruption to your work—plan your research to avoid the server migration, and place requests for OhioLINK materials before Noon on the 7th.

Behind the Scenes Movie: Redesign Competition
Watch movie highlights of the 3 student teams as they presented their plans for the KSL First Floor Redesign Competition. Then watch deans, vice presidents, architects, deputy provost and others react to the presentations and comment on the ideas. FIlmed over several hours, the selected movie scenes let you watch & listen in on the work of teams and decision-makers:
• Hear teams talk about elements like active/quiet spaces, color-coded signage, reading nooks, centralized technological spaces and more, including energy-producing sun tables.
• Watch the evaluation review panel discuss the teams' unique & repeating elements plus possibilities for new spaces.
Spend a few minutes "behind the scenes" & see winning ideas for the next phase of KSL as the heart of the campus!
