The Library at Oklahoma State University is both the literal and figurative center of the campus. The elegant structure has been the academic symbol of the University since it was built in 1953. Today the Library continues to be central to student research, study and learning. Our collections and services support faculty research and teaching. Throughout the day, students flow in and out of the Li...brary taking advantage of time between classes to study, check class assignments online, read online news sources and email friends and family.
Academic librarians acknowledge that no one ever graduated from a library. We contend, however, that no one ever graduated without one either!
