Library Services

Off Campus Library Services provides both mediated and direct access to resources and services designed specifically for the adult student. The Jackson Library in Marion has thousands of materials via searchable databases, including both print and online journals; streaming media titles; print books and ebooks; and various formats of microform. These are all searchable via the secured Jackson Library databases.. Small library collections are available at the Louisville campus, Ohio campuses at Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, and Dayton, as well as the Indiana campuses at Greenwood, Indianapolis (two locations), and Merrillville, and include some reference books and full access to the library catalog and subscription-based journal and book indexes. Remote access is also available to all databases through the university login. Students can get personalized assistance from OCLS librarians at Cincinnati, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Louisville, Marion, and Merrillville campuses. Librarians assist with general paper editing especially as it pertains to use of the writing style of their degree program. OCLS can also help troubleshoot basic word processing and PowerPoint challenges.

The Wesley Seminary student or distance student can contact OCLS via e-mail, 800 telephone, or chat service. Online access to the Library Resource Guide is available from the OCLS Web page; OCLS Tools. All provided services are further described in this document. One on one or group instruction about the services and databases of OCLS or a writing style is available by special appointment.

The library is part of a consortium, Academic Libraries of Indiana, which includes access to most library collections of Indiana higher education institutions. If attending classes in Kentucky or Ohio, the regional OCLS librarian can inform students about opportunities in their area.
