The ODU Library in the Spangler Learning Center holds over 100,000 circulating materials for our patrons. Spread out over the Top and Middle Floors, the Main Stacks are organized by the Dewey Decimal Classification system. The numbers that outline what is contained in each range of shelving is noted on the endplate of the shelf. To assist the patron and the staff, we request books be placed on the carts at the end of the row, to give our students experience in the process of accurate shelving.

Just a note –
As a general courtesy to all patrons, please refrain from loud conversations and from using cell phones wherever you are in the Spangler Learning Center. See our Building Policy for more information.

Since this building is a learning center, which is home to more than just the library, everyone's cooperation and respect for varied study needs is needed. Please be sensitive to these needs.
