First Story in Bicentennial Series Features Libraries’ Various Locations

Ohio University Communications and Marketing in partnership with University Libraries is launching a Compass series in honor of the Libraries’ 200th anniversary, and the first installment, “OHIO’s College Green Steeped in University Libraries’ History,” is now available to read. This first story retraces the Libraries’ physical expansion from a humble book-shelf in the Academy to the bustling hub that is Alden Library. 

The year-long series will reflect on how University Libraries has grown and adapted over 200 years, and spotlight little-known facts about OHIO’s Libraries, the heart of Ohio University.
