Collections enhancement fund to support the University’s signature research areas --The Collections Enhancement Fund provides a unique opportunity for supporters to help us continue to meet the demand for scholarly articles and monographs. With more than 2 million volumes, including 68,975 unique electronic journals, and 360 databases, OSU Libraries provides a tremendous amount of scholarly content to the OSU community in support of the University’s teaching and research mission. Usage of our collections continue to increase yearly, especially usage of our 360 databases and 68,975 electronic journals. The Collections Enhancement Fund gives the Libraries the agility to address emerging areas of research, to strengthen existing collections, and to meet general needs through the purchase of books, journals, videos, and other materials.
