Legacy Library has a print grant collection well beyond the core material that comes to us from the Foundation Center. In general, much of the grant collection can be found in call number ranges HD50-HD100 and HV40-HV100 in the circulating stacks on the 2nd floor. The best access tool for the physical library collection is the online catalog. This catalog and the statewide OhioLINK catalog can be linked from below:
- MC Library Catalog
Catalog of books, media, journals, and other materials owned by the Legacy Library.
NOTE: The catalog can be used by both Marietta College users and community patrons.
- OhioLINK Library Catalog
Catalog of books and other materials held in Ohio college and university libraries.
NOTE: Only Marietta College students, faculty, and staff can make OhioLINK requests.
A large part of grant literature comes from periodical and article sources. A number of library and outside resources do a good job of covering much of the periodical literature in this area and links to some of those sources can be found below:
