The rush is on for Oakwood University friends and constituents to find a wealth of valuable documents, materials, and pictures. This research site puts the pick-axe in your hands to dig beneath the surface for nuggets of historical, cultural, and enrichment value!OU GoldMine is comprised of 4 main Documents On Command (DOC) sites. This website is published as a complimentary service of Oakwood University, Special Projects Initiative (SPI). While SPI coordinators select OU GoldMine material, naturally the views and positions presented in the documents and materials are those of the writers and researchers.
