*Veterinary Medicine*

This research guide covers resources about veterinary medicine.

Find Books at OSU

Use 1Search from the library's home page to search for books in the Valley Library, OSU branch libraries, and Summit Libraries.

The primary book collection is located at the McDowell Veterinary Medicine branch library but there are also books located at the Valley and Guin Libraries. Ebooks are available as well.

For more detailed help in using 1Search, you can check out the 1Search Research Guide.

Limit to Items in OSU Libraries (Online Catalog)

Choose the At OSU Libraries only scope to search all of the OSU Libraries collections.  This includes Vet Med, Valley, Guin and OSU Cascades. This option is available after you enter your initial search terms. Because of COVID, you cannot access many of our print materials by walking into a library. If you need a book from Valley, Guin or OSU Cascades, look at the request options. You can have an item delivered to your home or, for Valley items, you can place a hold and pick it up at Valley.  Items at McDowell Library are for use in the library only. You can access McDowell Library any time.  Confused?  Ask Mary and she can help negotiate the options with you or check out this research guide.


How do I find Ebooks?

To search for an ebook, type in the title of the ebook.

Click on the Online Access link to access the content.

If you are in the full record, click on the View Full Text or Full Text Available at link in the View It section.

How do I get a book from another library?

You can request a book from another library if the OSU Libraries' copy is checked out or if we don't own a copy.

If the availability of the items says Request this Item, that means we either do not own the item or it is currently checked out.

Off-Campus Access to Library Resources

Current OSU students, faculty, and staff must enter their ONID login information and DUO authentication to access OSU Libraries' resources. If an online resource is not working properly through the Libraries' proxy connection, OSU's VPN service can be used. Some OSU services require connecting via the VPN. For full VPN installation steps, see the VPN set up guide and select your operating system.
