- OSU Library CatalogSearch for books and other items available at OSU - includes ebooks
- OhioLINK CatalogSearch for books statewide.

- Electronic Book Center (OhioLINK) [Full Text] This link opens in a new windowElectronic Book Center included ebooks on all subjects, including many encyclopedias, handbooks, biographical collections, and guides.

The OSU Library Catalog has subject headings. If you had found a good book on your topic, examine the subject headings for that book below the location/call number box. You can click on these to see other items with that subject ot you can search subject directly as follows.

Examples:

"History" is a subdivision of a subject that can be added after any other term. Examples: Format: branch--history. Clickable examples:

For mathematics history in a country, region, use for format mathematics--country/region--history Examples:

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.

- Scopus This link opens in a new windowScopus is a citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with smart tools to track analyze and visualize research. Tools to sort, refine and quickly identify results help researchers focus on the outcome of their work.
- Web of Science Core Collection This link opens in a new windowProvides access to citation indexes which can be searched individually or as one file.
- Arts & Humanities Citation Index indexes 1,100 of the world's leading arts and humanities journals, as well as covering individually selected, relevant items from over 6,800 major science and social science journals.
- Science Citation Index Expanded indexes 5,300 major journals across 164 scientific disciplines and contains searchable, full-length, English-language author abstracts for approximately 70 percent of the articles in the database.
- The Social Sciences Citation Index indexes 1,700 journals spanning 50 disciplines, as well as covering individually selected, relevant items from over 3,300 of the world's leading scientific and technical journals.
- Book Citation Indexes- Science and Social Sciences & Humanties indexes over 30,000 editorially selected books in the sciences, social sciences and humanities, with 10,000 new books added each year. It contains searchable, full-length, English-language author abstracts for approximately 60 per cent of the articles in the database.

- Computers and Applied Sciences Complete [Selected Articles in Full Text] This link opens in a new windowComputers & Applied Sciences Complete (CASC) covers the spectrum of the applied sciences, representing knowledge on traditional engineering challenges and providing material for research concerning the business and social implications of new technology. CASC provides indexing and abstracting for more than 1,300 academic journals, professional publications, and other reference sources. Full Text is also available for more than 500 periodicals. Subject areas include the many engineering disciplines, computer theory, and new technologies. Includes Computer Source - Consumer Edition.

- JSTOR [Selected Articles in Full Text] This link opens in a new windowJSTOR offers multidisciplinary and discipline-specific collections in the humanities, sciences and social sciences. The moving wall represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. It is specified by publishers in their license agreements with JSTOR, and generally ranges from 3 and 5 years. In calculating the moving wall, the current, incomplete year is not counted.
- Academic Search Complete [Selected Articles in Full Text] This link opens in a new windowAcademic Search Complete is comprehensive scholarly, multi-disciplinary full-text database, with more than 5,300 full-text periodicals, including 4,400 peer-reviewed journals. In addition to full text, this database offers indexing and abstracts for more than 9,300 journals and a total of 10,900 publications including monographs, reports, conference proceedings, etc.
- Google Scholar This link opens in a new windowGoogle Scholar indexes items Google considers scholarly, including articles, theses, books, preprints, abstracts, conference proceedings, and technical reports. The OSU Libraries subscribes to the electronic version of many of these materials and may own the print copy. See Make Google Scholar Work For You to set the Google Scholar Preferences to ensure you find materials available free to you from the OSU Libraries and OhioLINK.

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.
