If you are having trouble logging into the databases remotely, make sure you are using your OBU email address as your username and your OBU email password (the default is your OBU ID# + 6 digit birth date) as the password. If that does not work, it's ok! You will just need to contact the Help Desk and ask them to reset your account for library database access. You can contact them via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (405-585-5200).

As of August 3, 2020, Interlibrary Loan services will be fully available. However, there will be some delays in the delivery of physical items due to library quarantining procedures both at OBU Library and the lending libraries. Resources are also more limited because some libraries have not reopened yet.
ILL items will be received by the library and a patron will receive an automated email that the item has arrived. ILL staff will send an additional email when the item is available for pickup after the quarantining period of 48 hours.
It is recommended that OBU students, faculty, and employees request scans or utilize digital copies of reserve materials whenever possible (especially for Civ and English 1153/1163 reserves) so that the information can be used by many without quarantining. We can assist in showing the table of contents of an item online and scan select chapters of that item so that the item does not need to be quarantined. The library staff member scanning the item will wear a mask and gloves.
