You can get books which are placed on course reserve/Valley Reserve by coming to the Circulation Desk. The Valley Library is open 24 hours/day from Sunday through Thursday nights. To find out what is on reserve for any course use the library catalog, look up your course number, or stop by the Info Desk on the main floor of the library.

Finding other books:
If you are looking for books, begin your search with the OSU Libraries Catalog.
Experiment with the OSU Libraries Catalog; here are some hints:
- Search by keyword; use quotation marks around phrases, ex: "biomass harvesting"
- Simple keyword search results are in relevancy order (not by date or alphabetical order) but if you use "quotes" the order will be by date
- Adding * to a stem word (harvest*) will also pick up variants of that term (harvests, harvesting, harvester, etc.)
- If the book you want is checked out or you don't find it in your catalog search, use the "Try Summit Libraries" button and see if it's available at one of our partner libraries in Oregon and Washington.
- When you start in the Summit catalog, click on the line that tells you how many libraries have the book. If OSU doesn't have it, or our copy is checked out, click on "Request Summit Item" and complete the information asked for.
- It will take 3-5 workdays for the Summit requests to arrive at the Valley Library. A notice will be sent to your ONID email when it's available and it will be held for 5 days for you to pick-up.
While you can use the catalog to look for journals, you cannot use it to look for specific articles in those journals. For this you need to use 1SEARCH or the databases discussed elsewhere on this guide.
