Great libraries are never finished

Since the construction of the Thompson Library nearly a century ago, virtually everything about learning, accessing and storing information—and the very nature of libraries themselves—have changed. The Ohio State University Libraries are at the forefront of that change. While the Ohio State Libraries are ranked among the top five academic libraries in America, we are not content to simply maintain the status quo. Our libraries are living laboratories for the future of library resources, research and services.

Regardless of the tools, technologies or trends that shape The Ohio State University Libraries, the mission remains the same: to find, share and preserve information while offer user-centered services to the students, faculty and community of Ohio State, as well as scholars around the country and the world.

We can do none of this without you. See how you can help us make a difference.
