Today The Ohio State University selected a photo of mine of the newly renovated William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library as their <a href=”http://www.osu.edu/imageoftheday/” target=”_blank”>Image of the Day</a>. I just noticed that it is also featured on the <a href=”http://www.osu.edu” target=”_blank”>Ohio State home page</a>! Thanks to the University for that!
As I’ve promised there are plenty more photos of the library and here is one of them. This was taken from the upper floor of the brand spankin’ new west wing. The central structure of the library is actually essentially the same and would be very familiar to those of us who wandered its claustrophobic stacks searching for obscure references. Well now, as you can see, they’ve been liberated with some nice new glass walls! Now we can all share and appreciate the spaces together and no longer will students develop minor anxiety disorders while simply researching an assignment.
