Stop 1 -- Catalog Workstations

There are catalog workstations on Basement, Third, and Fourth floors next to the center elevator, handy to the stacks. These stations have two computers connected to the Library's catalog, two printers for these computers, and a printer for the wireless laptops. These printers can be accessed via Bluetooth, infrared, and USB cable (provided).

Stop 2 -- Reshelving Area

There are areas set aside on each floor where materials wait to be returned to their proper location. After an item is returned to the Library, it is checked in and sent to the reshelving areas. OSU Library prides itself on returning materials to the shelves within 24 hours. Patrons are welcome to look in the reshelving areas for items, and if you find something you'd like to use, please help yourself!

Stop 3 -- Silent Study Area

This large, open Silent Study Area overlooks the Library lawn. Comfortable seating and plenty of natural light make it a favorite place for individual study. In addition to the south side of the Fourth Floor, the Basement is also a Silent Study Area. There are areas on First, Second, Third, Fourth, and Fifth Floors which are appropriate for group study.
