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.
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.
