Special Temporary Hours

Greetings OARDC Colleagues,

     Please join me in wishing Pat Sword, OARDC Library Assistant, well as she nears retirement.  Her departure will temporarily leave the OARDC library without permanent staff.  A search is underway for a new librarian, but in the meantime library hours and services will be limited.

Please note:

  • ATI Library will now be the pickup and drop off point for OhioLink and ILL materials for the OSU Wooster Campus.
  • ATI Library is located in Halterman Hall and is open 8 AM to 8 PM, M – Th and 8AM to 5PM on Fridays until finals are over.  Summer hours are 8AM to 5 PM M-F.    
  • Card entry will continue to allow entrance to OARDC Library.
  • The OARDC Library will be open with staff on hand in the afternoons from 2PM to 5PM starting May 9. From now until then we will staff the library from 2:30-4:30.
  • Reference questions will be handled by ATI Librarian, Kathy Yoder 330-287-1225 and Florian Diekmann in Columbus at 614-688-8413.
  • A new card entry system should soon be installed.  In the meantime we appreciate your patience.
