Vernon R. Alden and Family

Since its opening in the early 1800s, OHIO’s University Libraries has grown from a couple volumes to over three million volumes. Today, we serve thousands of students, faculty, staff and Athens Community members and act as an international resource through our services in the Library and online. We are ranked in the top 100 research libraries in North America and are a member of the Association of Research Libraries.

Dr. Vernon R. Alden, 15th president of Ohio University, once said, “The Library is far more than a collection of books or a building. It is the intellectual heart of the university, a vital element of university life with an essential role in teaching, learning and research.” As the university continues to grow, OHIO’s University Libraries strives to continue to be a place that cultivates student and faculty academic success.

Please support us as we help Ohio University faculty and students reach their full academic potential through aiding them in their teaching, learning and research. You can focus your gift on what you love through our different endowments . Every gift makes a difference. We hope you will join us.
