Guide to library services and resources for OBU adjunct professors and instructors.

Library Card

As an adjunct professor, you have access to all of our library resources and services. In order to make it easier for you to access our materials, we would like to create a library card for you. At your convenience, you can stop by the library front desk and ask for a librarian to create a card for you. 

What you need: A form of photo ID, your OBU email address, and your department mailbox number

If you would like to access our online databases from home you will need to use the following login credentials:

Username: OBU email address

Library Services

Reserves- We offer a reserve service for faculty and students. Faculty can place items on reserve for a specific class with a limited checkout period so more students will have access to these items. If you would like to place a personal item or library item on reserve, please fill out this form: Reserve Request Form.

Express Pickup- Place a hold on a book and we will pull it for you and hold it at the front desk for you to come and check out. 

Auditorium- We have a large auditorium in the basement of the library that can be used by professors for presentations, film showings etc. Please contact Deana Chesser at 405-585-4526 or deana.chesser@okbu.edu if you would like to schedule a time slot in the auditorium.

Media Equipment- We have a variety of media equipment available at the front desk for student and faculty use. Feel free to check out a projector, screen, ipad, or videocamera for your classroom or personal use!
