New Database: The Congressional Serial Set
The Congressional Serial Set, including the American State Papers, is a series of reports and documents published by Congress. It’s called the Serial Set because it was published in serial fashion. It contains all House and Senate reports and documents published since 1817, Presidential messages to Congress, treaty items, executive branch publications, as well as digitized images of maps and illustrations. The Serial Set covers a variety of subject areas, including African American Studies, botany, history, law, political science and women and gender studies.

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.

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 email@example.com 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.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Pam Majors at 740-368-3226 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
