The Reference and Circulation Desk is a Service of the ODL Information Resources Division...
ODL's Information Resources Division houses a large collection of current reference materials. The information staff provides quick factual assistance to state employees, (either over the phone, 405-522-3505, or in person), and readily-answered questions to public libraries statewide. More complex requests from public libraries are referred to the interlibrary loan networks.
State employees may request information on work-related topics, and check out materials from the circulating collections. In addition, database searching is available free to state employees for work-related topics. Interlibrary loan is available to state employees for materials not in the collections.
The Oklahoma Collection
This non-circulating collection consists of materials acquired by the Territorial Library (1893) and its successors to the present. It also includes the Oklahoma Vertical File Collection which is an uncataloged clipping and pamphlet file. The collection's major emphases are:
Library materials in the Main collection are accessible directly to State
Government employees (405-522-3505) and via interlibrary
loan through local libraries. Materials may be checked out and/or
returned at the Circulation Desk in the Allen Wright Memorial Library. Most library materials circulate for
one month with renewals. Reference books and other materials are subject
to special loan policies. Library materials may be recalled.
