Welcome Back!

Doug and EZRY celebrate Thomas Library

Welcome back from summer! It feels like the height of summer outside this week. It sure is hot and humid out there.

I want to personally welcome the students of the class of 2019 and invite you to stop by Thomas Library. If you check your campus mail box you will find a post card from the library. Bring it in and drop it off at the Circulation Desk to be entered in a drawing for a $100 gift card to the Wittenberg University Bookstore. If you have any questions about the Library and the various services we offer, please feel free to e-mail me; or stop by the Library, I would enjoy the opportunity to meet you.

To the members of the Classes of 2016, 2017 and 2018, I offer a warm welcome back to campus. I hope everyone had a good summer and is glad to be back. For some of you this is the last fall semester of your undergraduate careers; hopefully you can look back on your time at Wittenberg with pride, joy and good memories. All too soon you will leave us behind and go out and make us all proud of what you will accomplish in the “real world.” Before you do, take the time to enjoy what we have here at Wittenberg and take advantage of all the good things, including Thomas Library.

We continue to try to make the library a better place for students and one that you want to come to for studying and conducting research. A suggestion box can be found near the large tree in the atrium. We do check it and respond to your suggestions. Of course, not all of the suggestions are items we can deal with on short notice, i.e. the heating and cooling of the building, an ongoing, long-term issue of which we are all too aware.

The Library staff is ready to assist you in any way we can with your research and studies. Thomas Library has an excellent collection of books and journals in the building. In addition, you have access to millions of other books and journal articles from OhioLINK and beyond. The electronic resources, such as journal indices, full-text journals and electronic books, are an unbelievable bounty for our students. The Thomas Library staff is first rate and will do everything they can to assist you during your time here at Wittenberg.

Good luck to all!
