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!

Important Reminders!

The Library requires a campus-issued photo ID to check out materials. If you are a OSU student, faculty, or staff member, your BUCKID can be used to pay for printing and follow me printing in the library.

Please be sure to have it with you or have one taken.

You must also have a library record in our system to request and/or check out materials.  Contact the library if you cannot access resources by using your student/faculty/staff ID number.
