OSU Libraries and Press do a wide array of amazing stuff, and an Impact Report is compiled each year that offers highlights of the work that gets done and summarizes the amazing accomplishments of the previous year.
In addition to scintillating facts and figures and an overview of some of the many accomplishments of Libraries and Press faculty and staff, there’s also some cool quotes about libraries and books. Here’s one:
“Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy....In any library in the world, I am at home, unselfconscious, still and absorbed.” — Germaine Greer
Like that one? Here’s one more:
“I have an unshaken conviction that democracy can never be undermined if we maintain our library resources and a national intelligence capable of utilizing them.” — Franklin D. Roosevelt
