Kresge Library

A common thread weaves through the unique educational journey of each Oakland University student: Kresge Library. For more than sixty years, the Library has been at the heart of campus life. It is a place where the community comes together for the collective pursuit of knowledge. The Library still contains books and now offers many other types of materials along with study space, meeting spaces, quiet spaces, collaborative spaces, a café, technology help, information literacy instruction, a home for the Writing Center, access to hundreds of scholarly databases, wireless internet access, and engaged learning. During the Aspire. Advance. Achieve. Campaign for Oakland University, Library services will continue to evolve to meet the needs of students and faculty and help them succeed in their studies and research.

Fundraising priorities include:

  • Graduate Assistantships and Internships
  • Affordable Textbooks for Students
  • Endowed Faculty Positions
  • Access to Academic Research
  • Enhancing Library Collections
  • Supporting Library Special Collections
  • Information Technology Infrastructure
  • Memories of OU Archives Digitization Project
