The University Library Book Depository is a non-public location that houses a circulating but non-browsing collection. Materials may be ordered through the catalog and picked up at any OSU Libraries circulation desk.

The Depository serves as a high-density storage area for low-use library materials. This high-tech building features the most modern technology available for storing and retrieving large numbers of books, while providing a physically secure environment for little used yet permanent and important parts of the libraries' collections.
