January is International Wayfinding Month. Seeing as you've navigated to this site successfully, you've participated in wayfinding! This month is dedicated to wayfinding, and the benefits good wayfinding can provide. Wayfinding is often defined as patial problem solving, whether its a building or an environment, physically or electronically. It's built into the concept of knowing where you need to be and how to navigate there from your current location. Not only does this week's exhibit feature books from the Valley Library in Corvallis, and the Cascades Library, but also an active learning kit.


Don't forget, 1Search is available to help you with your information needs. Or ask a librarian!
