Since March the Courtright Memorial Library staff have continued services virtually, and now as we begin reopening the library building, our phased plan to do so includes modified and new offerings. Please see our Updates page for Fall 2020 changes.

We are now offering No Contact Pick up for Otterbein-owned items at the library. Check out our Hours page for more information on the specific hours this service is available.

Online resources remain available to students and faculty 24/7. Research Help services will be available from 9am-6pm via virtual communication. Ask a Librarian via chat, email, or text. You can also email your Personal Librarian directly.

For more assistance you can:

Digital Commons @ Otterbein

The Digital Commons @ Otterbein is an institutional repository of digital materials that includes faculty scholarship, student projects, historical documents, videos, photographs, video, and other information that benefits the university community.

Otterbein University Archives

The University Archive is our historical repository, containing the documents, photographs, and artifacts that tell the story of Otterbein University and (to a lesser extent) the United Brethren Church, which founded us in 1847.
