Step 1: Do your research

The Clinton Global Initiative University Application asks you to write your "Commitment to Action". All of the "Commitment Details" require short and brief summaries. 

Conducting research into your global challenge, problem, or issue can be done using the OSU Libraries' search engine, 1Search. Use it to discover books, documents, videos, and online articles.

What's included?

  • All the materials from the OSU Libraries catalog, such as books, videos, government documents, maps, sound recordings, music scores, etc.
  • Scholarly journal articles, newspaper and magazine articles from a wide variety of sources; over 62,000 items. Much of this content is full-text.
  • Resources from the OSU Libraries digital collections, such as ScholarsArchive.

If you have questions, please contact librarian Laurie Bridges, Laurie will help, or direct you to someone who can help.


Step 2: Research the country and target population

In your application you will need to describe your global challenge and target population. The guide, Resources on Global Perspectives, will help in your research.


Step 3: Meet with a librarian

A librarian can help you at many points during the research process. Whether you're just starting out, trying to determine if a source is reputable, or looking for obscure information, we're happy to meet with you one-on-one, correspond via email, or chat on the phone. Just contact the librarian for your subject area, or ask Laurie Bridges and she'll forward your question to the appropriate librarian.
