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!
