Library Resources & Service Support for Students

Access to Library Resources:

Materials in electronic format will remain available and can be accessed via this guide: Off Campus Access to Resources (https://library.owu.edu/offcampusaccess)

Libguides remain a great source for students wishing to receive guidance on which resources to use in the absence of librarian assistance.

Hours of Operation

Whether we are working remotely or on campus, we will be posting and updating our hours on our hours page. 

Borrowing and Lending

Lending and Borrowing of physical materials may stop or experience significant delays, especially those items coming from other universities (CONSORT, OhioLINK, ILL).  At this time we will not be shipping any physical items to staff, faculty or students. 

For those that have physical items checked out, the Library asks you do not return these items to the Library at this time. We will be extending due dates as we are able and plan on providing forgiveness for fees or bills incurred during this time. We may not be able to stop our automatic messages about bills and overdues so if you receive one during this time, you can ignore it. 

We will send additional messaging when we are ready to start receiving physical items back in the Library.
