Library

The Lima Campus Library is located on the first floor of Cook Hall. The library has approximately 80,000 books, CDs, and videos, and provides online access to over 130 databases. Through the online catalog for The Ohio State University, students can search for and request items from other Ohio State University libraries. Students can also access and request items through OhioLINK, a statewide online catalog of over 49 million items in 89 Ohio colleges and universities. Many of the online databases provide full-text articles from thousands of journals. Interlibrary loan is available if an article is not located in the Lima collection. The catalogs and databases can also be accessed from home by logging in to the library website.

The Lima Public Library has a small collection in the campus library as well. If you have a Lima Public Library card, you can check out these materials. The library also has VCRs, in addition to a microfilm/microfiche reader/printer. A conference room is available for group meetings, and is equipped with a VCR/DVD player.
