The North Boomer Annex contains selected books, journals, documents and other materials from the OSU Library collections. Items include those too fragile or brittle to remain in the circulating collection; selected papers, photographs or other materials from Special Collections and University Archives; print journals that are available electronically; older OSU theses and dissertations; and infrequently used books and journals.

Upon request, the Library will provide access to materials in the North Boomer Annex as follows:

  • Articles: If the request is for an article or selected pages from a book, Annex staff will make photocopies and post them to the Web for electronic access by the requester, unless otherwise requested.
  • Books: If the request is for the entire book or for a large number of pages, these will be delivered to the Circulation Desk for pick up.
  • Fragile and/or non-circulating materials: If the request is for material that has been designated as fragile and/or non-circulating, the material will be made available for consultation in the Special Collections & University Archives department in the Edmon Low Library.

Requests for Annex materials may be made electronically by completing the appropriate request forms.
