Graduate Student Newsletter - Nov. 29, 2022
Dear graduate students,  

Good luck with the final push of fall term. If you want a break — and free food — consider joining us this Friday, Dec. 2 from 3-5 p.m. for the gradCONNECT Film Fest in the EMU Redwood Auditorium.
We will screen three short films created by UO grad students and enjoy snacks and conversation in a welcoming and stress-free environment. Interested? Submit your RSVP.

Important: Elsevier Negotiation Stalled 

After multiple attempts, UO Libraries has been unable to reach a fair deal with Elsevier for its journal subscription contract renewal. This means researchers will need to use new methods to access Elsevier journal content starting in 2023. Visit this UO Libraries page for more info including:
UO will resume negotiations in 2023 and continue to push for a fair deal.
Those interested in learning more are encouraged to join a Q&A session with Vice Provost and University Librarian, Alicia Salaz, on January 11 at
11 a.m. RSVP here to receive the Zoom link.
