H 513: Integrated Approach to Public Health

On This Page

This page provides guidance for finding books at OSU Libraries and beyond.

Find Books

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

Public health materials are generally located in the "R" call number range and are shelved on the 1st floor of The Valley Library. 

Why do I need to sign in?

After you enter a search in 1Search on the OSU Libraries' homepage, you will be asked to sign in.

SAML login

We are encouraging you to sign in before you see your search results so you can get the full benefit of 1Search.

  1. You can save searches and items to your favorites. They'll still be there when you sign in the next time. If you go in as Guest, you can put things in your favorites but only temporarily. Once you exit 1Search, they will be gone.
  2. There is some content from online journals and ebooks that will not display unless you are signed in. The publishers/vendors make this a requirement. If you want to search the breadth of our online content, you will want to sign in.

You can always log in later in the top right corner of the screen but you'll want to rerun your search to get the maximum benefit.

Find books (and other content) at OSU Libraries

Use the At OSU Libraries only scope to locate the books, government documents, DVDs, maps and other resources held here in the OSU Libraries.

Once you search the OSU Libraries scope, you can refine to a resource type (books, ebooks, journals, maps, etc.) to help make your search more specific.

How do I get a book from another library?

You can request a book from another library if the OSU Libraries' copy is 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.

Click on Request this item

  • If the book is available in Summit (our Washington-Oregon-Idaho consortium), you will see a Place Summit request link in the Get It section. Click on the link and select a pick-up location.
  • If the book is not available in Summit, you will see a link to place an Interlibrary Loan request. Click on the link to place the request in your Interlibrary Loan account.
  • Sometimes you may see a Get it link instead, click on the link to request the resource.
