Libraries Will Transition to New Website

On Thursday, May 11, at 10:00 am, the Libraries are turning off our current website and transitioning to one hosted on a new content management system. It will look and feel more like the campus website. Most of the functionality and navigation will remain the same. The timing of the change will provide those faculty teaching summer classes an opportunity to review the site before the beginning of the semester.

Highlights of the Change:

  • The Libraries’ web address will remain the same: http://library.owu.edu/
  • The links to Blackboard, Course Reserves, REACH (InterLibrary Loan), and LibGuides can be found under the Services link in the black toolbar at the top of the web page.
  • Informational pages have been reorganized and are now all available from links in the black toolbar at the top of the web page. Direct links to informational pages will change.
  • Direct links to electronic resources and tools will remain the same. You should not have any issues if you have bookmarked a link to a resource or tool or saved it in Blackboard.

Remember that if you can’t find what you’re looking for or are having a problem, you can email libraries@owu.edu or call 740-368-3225 for assistance.
