How to access ebooks, databases, and help from a librarian.

Accessing Databases

To access any of OWU's subscription databases, on campus or off campus, you will be prompted to login with your OWU credentials. 


This is the same login you use to access Blackboard and your OWU email.

Access Outside of the United States

VPN installation instructions are here. If you have any questions or problems regarding the VPN, please contact the OWU Information Services Helpdesk
