The Bromfield Library (http://library.mansfield.ohio-state.edu/), serving the faculty, staff, and students of The Ohio State University at Mansfield, North Central State College, and MedCentral College of Nursing occupies the ground floor of Bromfield Hall. The Library provides traditional library services, as well as various audio-visual, non-book services.
The reference librarians will help faculty develop research strategies, locate sources, interpret citations, and assist in the development of on-line searching techniques for computer-based indexes. The Library's Interlibrary Loan department will help faculty obtain materials not available in our collection. Materials that are requested will be sent to the faculty member’s office.
The circulation staff will assist faculty in checking out materials from our collection, and help faculty place materials on reserve (books/videos) or e-reserve (articles, papers) in the library for controlled use by students. Books circulate to faculty and staff for 10 weeks, provided no one else requests use of the materials. Books circulate to students for three weeks. Audio-visual materials, including videos, DVDs, audio books, and CD-ROMs, circulate to faculty, staff, and students for one week. All periodicals and newspapers are non-circulating.
