Odum Library

 

Odum Library, dedicated in 1972, is the center of academic life for the campus. In August of 1990, the library was renamed the Gertrude Gilmer Odum Library after Gertrude Gilmer Odum who was a major benefactor of the University and Professor Emerita of English. Housing approximately 453,757 bound volumes, the library is staffed with trained librarians to lend every assistance to students and faculty. The library also contains nearly 3,000 current periodicals and newspapers and a microform collection of over a million units. In 2004, a new addition opened, doubling the size of the library and adding an Internet Café, an auditorium, additional computer labs, classrooms, and a new archives section. The Internet Café is open to students, faculty and staff of VSU 141 hours per week and the Library is open 112 hours per week.
