Odum Library


Odum Library is the heart of Valdosta State University. We are located at the south end of the pedestrian walkway, between the Student Union and the Lowndes and Brown residents’ halls. Library materials are available for students, faculty, staff and community members to use. The library collection includes approximately 513,000 volumes, electronic and print journals, government documents, microform, and audio-visual materials, as well as numerous maps, charts, and archival resources. The library currently subscribes to 4,000 print magazines, journals and newspapers and has available more than 66,000 full text online journals in GALILEO. Students, faculty, and staff have access to all eligible circulating materials at all USG libraries through the Universal Catalog and GIL Express.
