The Ray Smith Memorial IPM Library, maintained by the Oregon IPM Center, was drastically downsized as part of the Cordley Hall renovation. Len Coop, Isaac Sandlin (above), Oregon IPM Center and MU staff worked to save much of the collection, but thousands of books and documents were donated or sold. Len also worked with OSU archivist Karl McCreary to preserve documents and publications relevant to the history of the IPPC & Oregon IPM Center. Books that were saved will be moved into Cordley Hall following the renovations. (Please note: Chris had just walked in from the loading dock just out of frame and is usually wearing a mask!
