The Bizzell Library at the University of Oklahoma might not be in the Top 10 Largest Libraries, but it sure is pretty!

I go to the University of Oklahoma and we have a big library! When you combine all eight of our libraries on campus, we have slightly under five million books. I have gotten lost in the main library, Bizzell Library, on way more than one occasion. Usually, I won’t even venture into the library unless I have a friend to go with me or a map to guide me to my location. I know it seems pathetic, but unfortunately, I am being completely serious.

I now present, for your viewing pleasure, a list of the Top 10 Largest College Libraries in the USA, complete with how many books they have in their collection.
