COVID-19 Course Guide Available

Taking OWU’s MOOC on COVID-19? We have a resource guide for that!

We’re in This Together: An Interdisciplinary Exploration of the Coronavirus Pandemic is a 10-week course, where 24 Ohio Wesleyan faculty members address the coronavirus pandemic from perspectives across academic disciplines. Through lectures, panel discussions, and questions from the class, they will explore the lasting effects this crisis will have on global society, even as the pandemic unfolds. For more information on the course itself, please see the official COVID class page.

Along with linking to the weekly assigned readings, the library course guide will assist students in locating resources to add to their understanding of the crisis.

Have any questions bout the guide or need help accessing resources? Contact us!

A pilot project based upon student suggestions and driven by a collaboration between the Chaplain’s Office and OWU Libraries, this neutral space is open to all at Ohio Wesleyan. It is a quiet place to reflect, meditate, pray, or just enjoy a few peaceful moments to unplug and melt away stress. We encourage visitors to view the guidelines of the space before use.

Please direct any questions or feedback to: libraries@owu.edu.
