Centennial Library The 66,000-square-foot library served as the cornerstone of the University's 1987 centennial celebration. This structure brings together research and information services, resources, and personnel to support students and faculty. Located on a prominent site within the academic cluster of buildings, this facility provides solo and group study spaces, physical information materials, and in-person research support designed to meet the needs of all academic programs. The Library presently houses over 170,000 print volumes and provides access to nearly 200,000 e-books along with access to world-class databases and digital resources. Library resources are accessible remotely by students or faculty members, and research support services are also available online. In 1996, Cedarville University became one of the first private institutions to join OhioLINK, a cooperative of over 90 institutional libraries in Ohio that share physical resources through direct borrowing and digital resources through consortial purchasing. The Library's Digital Commons serves as the University's institutional repository and publishes both books and journals. The library also houses the MediaPLEX, the Curriculum Materials Center, computer classrooms, a variety of individual and group study spaces, and the University archives. The MediaPLEX offers project and production support including copying, printing, paper and materials supply, and other services. The Curriculum Materials Center provides PreK-12 resources to support the Education program in the Cedarville University School of Education and Social Work, as well as other education and ministry-related resources.
