About the ODU Libraries

Our physical libraries are located on ODU's Norfolk Campus. Perry Library is the main library, where you'll find most resources. Perry Library is also home to the Learning Commons, which has equipment for check out, computers to use, printing and group collaboration rooms, and Special Collections & University Archives on the 3rd floor.

The Diehn Composers Room is located in the Diehn Fine & Performing Arts Building. The Hofheimer Art Library is located in the Barry Arts building on Monarch Way.

If you are off-campus and have a MIDAS login, you can access all of our electronic resources and search our physical holdings. If you need a physical item and you are a distance student, request it through Interlibrary Loan and we will send it to you, free of charge!
