News and notes for math, August 2017

Olin Library’s north entrance is not anticipated to open until sometime in mid- to late-October. Check What’s New for dates and details as they become available.

Improvements Introduced to WU Libraries’ Homepage; I think these are really useful small changes. I hope you enjoy them.

Open access textbooks: Active Calculus Multivariable is a new open access textbook; the same author has some other textbooks. I imagine a lot is involved in adopting a textbook and at WU there is no requirement to consider textbook cost. But please do contact Ruth Lewis if you would like to have such resources added to our catalog or if you have customized versions you would like to have preserved and available in our repository, Open Scholarship.
