Welcome to Clark Memorial Library

Librarians and library staff at Shawnee State University are dedicated to the university's missions of teaching & learning, growth & development, and community service, as well as to fulfilling the OhioLINK vision of providing excellent library resources to all higher education constituencies in Ohio.

Clark Memorial Library was a founding member of the OhioLINK consortium. The OhioLINK consortium provides SSU students, faculty, and staff with a wide range of resources that are typically found at larger research universities. As a member of OhioLINK, SSU faculty can borrow resources from most universities in Ohio. 

Feel free to stop by the library and let us introduce you to the many services and resources available to you and your students.
