The library is the intellectual heart of the college and the community. EOU Library supports the institutional mission of Eastern Oregon University by providing materials and services for all members of the college community. It supports the regional mission of the college by providing materials and services in connection with institutional outreach programs, through cooperative participation in regional library networks, and by making its collections and services available to the people of eastern Oregon.
The library’s collection includes over 153,000 book volumes and 1,300 periodical titles, together with extensive holdings in maps, U.S. government publications, Oregon documents, audio-visuals, and microforms. This all adds up to over 660,000 items to help you with your information needs. In addition, EOU Library is a member of the Orbis Cascade Alliance consortium made up of 37 colleges and universities in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.
We are committed to creating and maintaining a dynamic environment, focused on service and guided by the principles of intellectual freedom, that encourages access to the cultural, historical and intellectual achievements of humankind.
EOU Library will provide access to quality and current research materials and services for the students, faculty, and staff of Eastern Oregon University, regardless of location, and for the eastern Oregon community.
