OSU Libraries and Services during COVID-19

Greetings Beavers! We know the changes on campus have been stressful, and we’re grateful for your patience and understanding as we plan to reopen the Valley Library building. Our primary goals are keeping students, staff and faculty as safe as possible, while continuing to provide access to the resources and study spaces that the OSU community needs to excel.

Expand the menu items on the left of this guide to learn how we have adapted library services and spaces for 2020-2021. If you have questions, connect with us through our Ask a Librarian service. We look forward to hearing from you.
