Library services for OU students, faculty, and staff

The Home page of the OU Libraries website changed on Tuesday, January 10th, 2023. You will now see a tabbed search box instead of one "Discover" box, and the Login button was moved to a different location. All of the services and resources you previously used are still available. See this announcement for more information. 

Featured Resource

New in 2022! The OU Library now subscribes to PolicyMap, an interactive online data and mapping tool that contains thousands of indicators used to understand communities. Regularly updated indicators include demographics, real estate, health, jobs, income and spending, housing, crime, quality of life, education, socio-economic factors, and more. Data is available by census tract, zip code, city, state, school districts, and political boundaries.
