The Ohio State University Libraries is here to support the research, teaching and learning needs of students and scholars, Buckeyes and beyond. We offer services and educational resources that open minds and advance equity, inclusion, and diversity in the pursuit and sharing of knowledge.

Our libraries provide access to deep research collections, an extensive offering of online resources available anytime anywhere, and special collections of exceptional quality and distinction. Our facilities offer work spaces designed to enable a variety of learning styles and research methods. We strive to provide convenient, ubiquitous resources and services – in your home, in your office, inside one of our welcoming facilities, or wherever your scholarly pursuits lead you.

Our greatest resource is the Libraries’ faculty and staff; whose expertise produces value beyond the collections; who are committed to continual improvement and innovation; and who strive to meet the diverse and evolving information needs of Ohio State students, faculty, staff, and scholars throughout Ohio and the world.   

Ohio State is a global leader, and its libraries are actively engaged in local, statewide, national and international initiatives that will help shape the future of academic research libraries. These activities and the innovations that result will enhance our ability to acquire, manage, and preserve information resources, support the creation of new knowledge, and enable its effective transmission to future learners.

Ask us. Chances are, we can help.

Go Buckeyes!
