Collection Management

OSU Libraries has nearly 2 million volumes. We add approximately 23,000 monographs annually and purchase approximately 39,000 current serials. Recognizing the desire of students and faculty to have 24×7 access to information, the Libraries is rapidly shifting from a print collection to a digital one. As of 2011, the Libraries provided access to more than 360 databases and 68,975 unique electronic journal titles. This increase in coverage corresponds with an increase in usage. In 2005, there were 1,852,533 searches performed in 113 databases. In 2010, usage increased to 2,670,496 searches in 265 databases. In addition to database and e-journals, the Libraries continue to add electronic books to the collection. In 2005 the number of e-books was 2,986. By 2010 the number was at 20,547 and trends support an increase in 2011. As students and faculty become more comfortable with e-books, their use increases.
