The 14 libraries in the university’s eight-campus system contain more than 2.2 million volumes and electronic access to information worldwide. While designed to support student and faculty research, the libraries benefit community members and researchers. Special Collections and Archives holds a wide range of materials, including British and American literature and poetry, true crime and the history of crime, theatre and the performing arts, children's literature, inactive university records, the history of Kent and Portage County, and a large collection documenting the events and aftermath of the May 4, 1970, shootings at Kent State.
Kent State Tuscarawas, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2009, became Ohio’s only Regional Campus to serve as a Federal Depository Library. The library gives students and the public access to federal documents and provides a range of business-related resources.
