University Libraries ensures easy and rapid access to resources, whether locally or remotely held, regardless of format.
In the Information Age, this means an increased emphasis on the most up-to-date access tools and delivery systems, while recognizing the importance of developing notable collections and preserving recorded knowledge for future use.
Also, most of our library’s subscriptions to scholarly journals are now acquired online, but that doesn’t mean they are free of cost. In fact, 80 percent of today’s acquisitions budget is for online publications. Because University Libraries pays for these subscriptions, students and faculty are able to engage in their everyday study and deeper research.
But regardless of the medium—paper, microfilm, CD, the Web, or digital collection—University Libraries is committed to acquiring and maintaining a comprehensive array of information that is accessible to students, faculty, and the world.
Through The Promise Lives: The Campaign for Ohio University Libraries, we continue to build the libraries’ holdings, a benefit to all students and academic areas. Your support can make the difference between providing collections, facilities, and services that are merely adequate, and providing these items in a truly special and innovative way.
