AOUM is the official repository of the records of the East and West Ohio Conferences of The United Methodist Church. Items which represent the heritage of The United Methodist Church in Ohio from its inception up to and including the present are collected. Ohio Wesleyan University is the custodian of these materials, not the owner.
The Special Collections Department is located on the second floor of Beeghly Library, adjacent to the Bayley Room. The Reading Room is open from 8:30-Noon, and 1-5, Monday-Friday. Students are highly encouraged to schedule appointments, but “walk-ins” are also welcome.
