A library is more than just books and study space; the librarians are one of the most important resources in any library. At ONU, you have your own Personal Librarian dedicated to helping you! We can help you find resources for your research assignments and formulate search strategies, or just assist you in finding your way around the library. Your Personal Librarian is assigned based on your major. Find the librarian for your major using the link below.
Librarians at ONU also create Research Guides to help students outside of library hours. These guides are often for a specific course, but there are also guides for subjects or special topics. The subject-specific guides are a great place to look for databases to try for a particular discipline, or for a refresher on research techniques. Browse our guides by subject using the dropdown below.
You can reserve rooms at the library for group meetings or studying. Many of these rooms contain a TV that can be used to display your screen to your whole group.
