Kresge Library's 60th Anniversary

On October 27, 1961, Oakland students rolled carts of books from North Foundation Hall up to the new Kresge Library. That day marked the official opening of the library, the third building on campus. We are celebrating the sixtieth anniversary of Kresge Library by providing access to this digital collection showing the library through the decades.

Ping Pong Diplomacy at OU

In 1972 the Chinese ping pong team visited the US, the first time an unofficial Chinese group came to the US after 23 years of hostile relations. One of their stops was Oakland University.

In this exhibit you will find documents and images from the Oakland University Archives collections that illustrate this historic visit.
