Special Collections Summer Service Updates

Due to staff transitions, the Special Collections Department and Reading Room will be closed on Fridays for the summer. Additionally, the library will pause their acceptance of donations for the OWU Historical Collection. Research requests for the OWU Collection should be sent to historicalcollection@owu.edu. Priority will be given to internal, campus requests. We thank you for your patience as we work through these changes.
