The OU Schusterman Library is the home library for students, staff and faculty of Tulsa-based programs from both the OU-Norman academic campus and the OU Health Sciences Center. The library is an active partner in accomplishing the educational, research and public service goals of the university; and strives to connect members of the OU-Tulsa community to outstanding information services, collections, and technology.
The new 22,000 square foot library building was completed in 2011 and includes a digital exhibit space; the information commons with 24 computer workstations; comfortable seating; two student group study rooms; reference assistance and writing center services. The second floor features a quiet reading room and twenty individual study carrels, as well as housing the print collection of books and journals.
Our local collections include more than 19,000 books and audiovisuals, along with current subscriptions to about 300 print journals. In addition, we coordinate with the other two campuses to provide access to thousands of electronic journals, e-books, databases and images. Materials not immediately available on-campus may be obtained from other libraries nationwide.
See our Annual Reports for details about our activities.
The library regularly offers a wide range of workshops and training classes; help with individual research projects; literature searches; and course-integrated instruction sessions.
