Finding Books

Use 1Search to find books located at OSU Libraries. While OSU is under remote instruction, OSU Libraries is purchasing and borrowing books as we can. 

Home delivery of print books, while OSU is teaching remotely for all campus courses. Yes, this means mailing of print books (when available and when we can't get as an ebook) to your home.

Tip! Use the date limits in 1Search and elsewhere to see if there are materials published during the time your are studying.

Google Books: Use the advanced search and limit by publication date, full view, and public domain to find primary sources.
