Other Available Resources

There are many ways to obtain valuable research materials at the Marion Campus Library.  Of course there are the library catalogs through which you can find both books owned by the Marion Campus as well as those of other Ohio State University libraries and OhioLINK member libraries.  There are also the databases that make it easy to find academic journal articles online.  Here at the Marion Campus Library we also have additional resources such as a periodical collection that includes journals in different academic disciplines.  

In addition to the periodicals, we also have an extensive pamphlet file which covers a wide variety of topics and a collection of sheet music, the Richard Myers Music Collection .
