Thorne Library/Learning Resource Center

Thorne Library provides the major bibliographic and information services and resources for the entire MVNU community, including the students enrolled in each of our Graduate and Professional Studies programs. It provides a high-quality collection of materials in many formats--including more than 123,000 print and non-print items--and maintains subscriptions to approximately 550 print periodicals and 8,300 electronic journals. Thorne Library also provides MVNU students, faculty, and staff with access to more than 180 research databases, as well as access to an additional 40 million items through its membership in OhioLINK (a statewide library consortium through which patron-initiated borrowing allows materials to be delivered to a library of choice within 3-5 working days).
