A pdf of Fall Semester Hours for the OWU Libraries can be viewed at 2016 Fall Semester Hours. Updates or changes to these hours throughout the semester will be posted on the Libraries’ Hours page. Please note that the Internet Cafe/Bashford Lounge will resume its 24×7 access on August 24th with the start of classes. Welcome back!
The library staff is happy to welcome students and faculty back to campus for the start of the 2016/2017 academic year!
Jillian Maruskin and Sarah Lucas (’16) have created an excellent new resource for LGBTQIA+ students at OWU. This comprehensive site includes information on how to find LGBTQIA+ books in library catalogs, a list of excellent websites, campus and off-campus resources, ally resources, and information on sex positivity.
This resource is available at http://library.owu.edu/lgbtqia_resources.
If you’d like to suggest additions to this guide, please email Jillian at email@example.com.
Summer School Hours for the OWU Libraries are now available. Please visit the following link, Summer School hours 2016 pdf, for a full listing.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 740-368-3225 for assistance.
With graduation fast approaching, please remember that most library items will be due soon. We ask that, if possible, please return library items by May 5th. Additionally, please know that failure to return library items by the due date can result in the withholding of your university transcript. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Pam Majors at 740-368-3226 or email@example.com.
Starting on Monday, April 25th the Libraries will be extending their hours heading into finals week. For a full listing of hours, please visit the following link: Finals hours Spring 2016 pdf.
We have just been informed that access to CONSORT and being able to use our databases from off campus has been restored. If you experience any issues, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 740-368-3225.
The Libraries extend a hearty congratulations to our five student employees who participated in the 2016 OWU Student Symposium. We are very proud of your accomplishments! Check out their photos.
