You'll see some important buttons while using the OSU Libraries resouces. Especially important are these 4:

Where: OSU Library Catalog.

What: Have an item sent to another location for pickup or recall an item checked out.

Where: OSU Library Catalog.

What: Check for access of an individual item via OhioLINK - such as an item checked out at OSU. Also repeats searches in the OhioLINK catalog to see additional options for your need.

Where: OhioLINK Catalog

What: Click to have an item delivered to OSU from an OhioLINK library.

Where: Library Databases

What: Check for online access to journal articles, conference papers, and more. Also gives interlibrary loan option if item is not available online.

**MathSciNet **is the major database to find content in the mathematics and statistics literature.

**MathSciNet has been Redesigned!**

This redesign has made significant changes to the way you search MathSciNet. The following tutorials will walk you through these changes:

- MathSciNet: Basic Search
- MathSciNet: Using Field Codes
- MathSciNet: Using Filters
- MathSciNet: Citing
- Example: Using MathSciNet's Updated Features to Explore Arithmetic Progressions

You can still use the previous interface, see the *Show Classic Interface* link above the magnifying glass search button, to the upper right of the search box.

Citation databases allow you to see for each article the items it cited and also the items that have cited it. If you find a great article, use these databases to move both back and forward in time from that article.
