Of the one hundred and eleven Ohio libraries funded by Andrew Carnegie, only eight of them were given to colleges and universities. Clippinger Hall was one of these buildings and was very important in the development of Otterbein and its curriculum, as it allowed the library collection to grow to match the needs of the college. It was the first building on campus to be built specifically for library facilities and the second oldest on campus today.
