Students at Oberlin have access to superior library resources. The recipient of a prestigious award for excellence in academic libraries, the Oberlin College Library has one of the largest and finest undergraduate collections in the nation.
The Main Library, housed in Mudd Center, remains busy with academic and social activities. Its recently opened Lemle Academic Commons on the main floor of Mudd Center is a hub for sharing research and information. It’s also the place to access technology, reference, and learning assistance. Opened since fall semester 2007, its major features include 29 workstations for individual or group study, printers, scanners, an electronic classroom, and multimedia stations with video editing. Adding to its appeal as a gathering spot for Oberlin’s academic community is Azariah’s Café, which sells a variety of coffees, pastries, and healthy snacks.
In addition to the Main Library, three specialized libraries are devoted to art, music, and science. In sum, all four libraries offer strong collections, extensive electronic access to databases and journals, and excellent reference staff.
