Annex Information

Hours: By appointment only

Due to budget constraints the Annex is lightly staffed. In addition, Annex personnel make frequent trips to and from the Main Library, so please be sure to call 405-744-5859 before you visit.

The North Boomer Annex contains selected books, journals, documents and other materials from the OSU Library collections. Items include those too fragile or brittle to remain in the circulating collection; selected papers, photographs or other materials from Special Collections & University Archives; print journals that are available electronically; older OSU theses and dissertations; and infrequently used books and journals.

How to Obtain or Use Annex Materials

Upon request, the Library will provide access to materials in the North Boomer Annex as follows:

  • Articles: If the request is for an article or selected pages from a book, Annex staff will make photocopies and post them to the Web for electronic access by the requester, unless otherwise requested.
  • Books: If the request is for the entire book or for a large number of pages, these will be delivered to the Circulation Desk for pick up.
  • Fragile and/or non-circulating materials: If the request is for material that has been designated as fragile and/or non-circulating, the material will be made available for consultation in the Special Collections & University Archives department in the Edmon Low Library.

Requests for Annex materials may be made electronically by completing the appropriate request forms.
