Many journals these days are electronic, or are included in full-text databases. The OSU Libraries Catalog links to these as well as to print resources.
If you are searching for articles about a subject, we recommended that you use a database to do your article searching. This allows you to search many titles at one time (and search print journal contents at the same time).
Another access point to our e-journals is the e-journals list from the main library page. Use this if 1) you have the citation to a specific article in a specific journal; 2) you wish to electronically browse a journal's contents; 3) you wish to verify that OSU has the journal online.

Sometimes browsing a shelf can lead to some promising resources. OSU uses the Library of Congress classification system to organize and arrange materials in the library. Most political science materials fall into the "J" call number range and are located on the 5th floor of The Valley Library. More specific groupings of materials include:
|JC - Political theory||JS - Local government|
|JF - Constitutional history||JV - Colonies and colonization|
|JK - United States||JX - International relations|
|JN - Europe|
