Welcome to Ohio University Libraries. The Libraries has a rich history of creating tailored and dedicated services, unique collections and diverse innovative spaces. With our strong connections to students, faculty, staff and the community, we are a leader and innovator in enabling our users’ success in teaching, learning and research.
Our dedicated staff is committed to excellent customer service and enhancing the discovery and use of our collections. Through continuous engagement with our community, we adapt our services, collections and physical spaces to meet our users’ changing needs.
We collaborate with faculty, staff and students in building collections that reflect the needs and interests of the University and our region. We are also leaders in providing students with affordable access to educational materials.
Our membership in OhioLINK provides students, staff and faculty easy access to materials from 91 other academic libraries in the state of Ohio. Materials from libraries around the world are also readily available through Interlibrary Loan.
Our spaces throughout Ohio University's campuses provide visitors with multiple ways to study, learn, create and collaborate. In Alden Library, we have quiet, group and silent study areas, as well as numerous group study rooms and active learning spaces for collaboration. We have spaces where visitors engage with our collections as well as technology-rich environments where they can create multimedia and digital projects.
I invite you to explore all that Ohio University Libraries has to offer. As we continue to help advance the strategic directions of the University, please let us know how we can continue to innovate to better serve your information needs.
