Developing an open educational resource on the history of our libraries is planned as a multi-year project. This is where you come in: You may have access to a book, articles, special collection or archival items, photographs, or other items that can contribute to the effort. See how to submit your documents.

Awards are given each year in fiction, non-fiction, children/ young adult, poetry, and design/ illustration categories for works written by an Oklahoman or about Oklahoma. Check out the 2022 winners. The Center for the Book will announce the 2023 winners at the ceremony on April 22


View the latest additions to our collections. If you are a state agency employee, you can check out the latest books, movies and audiobooks with your ODL library card. If you are not a state agency employee, you may be able to check out these titles at your local library or get them through Interlibrary Loan.


The Legal Information for Oklahoma initiative seeks to collect, organize, and promote access to resources related to the Oklahoma legal system. View resources for Library Staff and general info for Oklahomans.

ODL provides access to many books, audiobooks, videos, and other materials to patrons through their local public libraries. Patrons can borrow a resource that is rare or unavailable at their local library. 

Several step-by-step lessons are available online to help you navigate various software applications, applying for jobs, internet safety, social media account set up, research techniques and citing resources.
