Finding Academic articles

Books Using the Library Catalog

Find books at OSU Libraries in a few easy steps. 

  1. Enter your topic in the 1Search search box in the top right corner of the screen
  2. To narrow your search to only OSU Libraries, choose the At OSU Libraries only scope to search all of the OSU Libraries collections. This includes Guin, Vet Med, and OSU Cascades.
  3. Use the facets on the right-hand side of the page to choose "book" as the content type you want to see. 
  4. Write down the call number so you can go get the book off the shelf.
  5. Check out the book at the circulation desk using your OSU ID

Click on the title of the book to see additional details.

Check the subject headings

As we discussed together, the "controlled vocabulary" used in a database or library catalog can shape how you find relevant information. If you are struggling to find information, take a moment to brainstorm other ways the topic could be described.

If you find one really good piece, take a look at the subject headings used. Often you can click through directly to find other materials tagged with that term.

If you're struggling to find relevant information, please consider reaching out to Kelly!
