Fall 2020 Library Hours
More than the stacks of books, the OSUIT Library offers an online catalog so users can easily browse the collection or search for specific items such as books, journals, research materials and digital media. You’ll also appreciate the convenience of our computer lab with a variety of PCs, Macs and laptops. You can even check out an iPad, headphones or calculator to assist with your studies.

A collection of databases covering OSUIT’s many programs have also been cataloged and verified, making online research more reliable than other Internet search engines.
A selection of electronic books is available to users as well as the list of more than 40 other higher education institutions across the state that participate in OK-Share, a program that allows OSUIT students to borrow materials from other colleges and universities after filling out an application.
The OSUIT University Archives are also housed within the library. Find more information on our archives here.
Please come by and ask us about browsing our archival displays in our exhibit room. If you would like to explore the archives further please contact our archivist, Beth Kieffer, to schedule a research appointment by phone at 918-293-5078 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
