Welcome to the Library!

The Marion Campus Library supports the learning, research and service activities of students, faculty and staff at The Ohio State University and Marion Technical College. Through collaborative efforts with The Ohio State University Libraries, the OhioLINK consortium and campus departments, we provide  a variety of print and electronic materials and instruct users in finding and using the various resources. In addition, we offer enhanced learning experiences through exhibits, displays and other library programming.

I invite you to explore our library website further and to stop by the library soon. We look forward to serving you!

Betsy L. Blankenship
Director/Head Librarian

Important Reminders!

Be sure to get your campus photo ID taken at the Alber Student Center Activities Office.  The library requires it to check out library materials.

You must also have a student record in our library system. 

To log-in to resources off-campus or to request materials in the catalogs, you must use your MTC Student ID number preceded by a capital P. (ex. P000012345). This number should be on your campus ID card, too.  Watch the video below to see how you would sign in to find articles in the Research Databases.

Contact the library if you cannot access library resources.
