Welcome to the Kresge Library and the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine Library!
The University Libraries, located at the heart of OU’s beautiful campus, are key centers of learning in our educational community, providing access to scholarly information, research support, library instruction, and computing and study facilities. Here at the Libraries and through our extensive Web sites, you'll find important services and resources to help you meet your academic and research goals.
This year, we’re very excited to launch our new website, which was designed with your input and ease of navigation in mind. An ongoing project will be to strengthen all of our online interfaces to make sure they work as seamlessly as possible, and to improve our online tutorials and research guides so that help can be there when you need it. In that same vein, we’re providing our physical resources and services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for those with current OU ID cards. Throughout the Library, new and upcoming improvements to our spaces are in the works, with comfortable, inviting areas where you can study quietly or meet in groups.
Just as networked systems and digital information have transformed our society, you'll discover that we continue to hone our services, collections, and facilities in creative ways to meet your information and research needs. We hope you'll consider the Library to be your educational partner and source of quality scholarship and learning during your time at OU. Please let us know how we can assist you.
Best wishes for a successful academic year!
