Concord University Library


The J. Frank Marsh Library is centrally located between Marsh Hall and the student center. The facility has a seating capacity of 200 places, a collection consisting of 157,087 volumes and provides access to over 5,000 periodicals. The collection is chosen with the University Community in mind, however members of the public are permitted to use the resources of the library.

The library is a partial depository for United States government documents; maintains a significant collection of West Virginia historical materials, preserves a Concord University archival collection, and is home to the Wells Goodykoontz Collection of autographed portraits and photographs of presidents and other well-known personalities.
