At A Glance


Research smarter, study harder, and design your future. The OWHL is more than just books and databases (though we have plenty of both). It's about putting words into action.


Develop assignments, pursue your research, and find collaborators. Your syllabus doesn't need a traditional "research project" for students to grow their media literacy skills at the OWHL.


Bring your family, find a nook, and discover new authors. The OWHL isn't just for research, and we have the books, movies, newspapers, magazines, games and more to prove it.
