Volunteering at SOU’s Hannon Library

I volunteered for an hour this morning in the government publications department at Southern Oregon University’s Hannon Library. Volunteering at an academic library is an invaluable opportunity, sure to broaden my experience.

Hannon Library is enrolled in the Federal Depository Library Program of the U.S. Government Printing Office. Hannon’s federal publications collection is available to constituents in Oregon’s Second Congressional District.

The department maintains a digital archive specializing in Southern Oregon history, the Southern Oregon bioregion and a First Nations/ Tribal Collection.

The department offers training in the use of government mobile sites and apps on iPads available through Hannon Library to SOU students, faculty and staff. The department plays an important role: putting government information in the hands of constituents.
