Black text on a white background: A poem titled The Spirit of ILL. The book that came for you today is from a thousand miles away, a place that I have never seen except on a computer screen. The hands of one not known to me selected this book carefully and gladly sent it on demand to place it in a stranger's hand. Anonymous on either end, in sharing spirit we will send our books with care across the miles and know somewhere a stranger smiles. A drawing of a smiley face.
This poem came to OSULP’s Resource Sharing unit last week. It was tucked into the the pages of a book, from the National Agricultural Library.

You have probably seen this iconic image of Mt. Saint Helens. Forty years ago – it was everywhere! Did you know it was taken by an OSU alum? The Special Collections and Archives Research Center captured this bit of history as part of the Sesquicentennial Oral History Project. In this interview, Roger Werth talks about his undergraduate years at OSU, his memories of the eruption, and his broader experiences in photojournalism.
