The historical collection exists to facilitate research related to the history of Ohio Wesleyan University by acquiring, preserving, and providing supervised access to historically significant materials by, about, or related to OWU constituents. It is available for supervised use to the three main user groups described in the OWU Libraries Collection Development Policy:
Because this collection is of interest mainly to those with ties to the university, the first priority of the collection is to serve the needs of OWU.
Artifacts: scrapbooks, photographs, portraits, mementos, and ephemera
Building, People, and Subject Files
Faculty and Alumni Publications
Student Departmental Honors Papers
University Publications: yearbooks, alumni magazines, student newspapers, catalogs, and directories
The OWU Historical Collection is not a repository for official university records and does not contain student transcripts, university personnel records, or correspondence files.
For information about student transcripts, please contact OWU's Office of the Registrar.
