News and Highlights

The UO Libraries/Ithaka S+R Faculty and Graduate Students survey conducted in Spring Term 2022 aimed to help us understand faculty members' and graduate students' research and teaching behaviors and the role our libraries play in supporting those. Here are some highlights from our findings.
Special Collections and University Archives is thrilled to announce the recent acquisition of the Brian Lanker Collection, a large and compelling selection of his photography, interviews, and film work. Lanker (1947-2011) was a Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalist and artist based in Eugene, Oregon, whose repertoire encompassed a wide range of subjects, from Steve Prefontaine to advertising for Nike and documentary photography for Life Magazine.
Congratulations to Hilary Rose Dawson, PhD student in Biology, who won the 2022 Book Collecting Prize! Her miniature collection began with 32 works of loosely defined “miniatureness” housed in a small bookcase her grandfather made. It includes a tiny copy of Peter Rabbit, a dream dictionary, and a hand-bound alphabet book made by her sister. Since then, she's amassed more than 500 titles.
