We opened this morning at 7:30 am, and we checked out our first book in our new building. Professor Shawn Schaefer of the OU Urban Design Studio checked out Notes on Nursing by Florence Nightingale. He tells us that he chose this book because of its particular appropriateness for our campus, since in addition to its importance for nursing, it has ” influenced medicine, public health and social work. Ms. Nightingale’s work has influenced my own profession by promoting building and urban sanitation and led to the design of modern hospitals and clinics.”
The Schusterman Library is open, and a book has been checked out.
