Anyone is welcome to use the OSU Libraries. Locations include:
We have public access computers where you can search our library catalog and access the online databases. You can get research help at the reference desk.
For borrowing privileges, you will need a library card.
You can also contact the staff at the OSU's McDowell Library (College of Veterinary Medicine) directly by phone at (541) 737-6782 or email.
You may also use the Answerland chat service. The online service is staffed by librarians from all over Oregon and is available to all Oregon residents.
Due to licensing restrictions, we can only make the online databases available off-campus to OSU faculty, students and staff. You may use the databases in the libraries.
To borrow books and other materials from OSU Libraries or other libraries, you need to go through your local public library.
The staff there will be willing and able to help find what you need. Check with them regarding borrowing and interlibrary loan privileges. Some libraries may charge for interlibrary loan services.
Your local public library is a great source for information, resources, and research assistance. Please contact your local public library to find out about borrowing priviledges and other services available to community members.
