- 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.

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:

**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.

- Scopus This link opens in a new windowCitation searching across most disciplines. Contains most of the content from Compendex (engineering and computer science) and GEOBASE (geography).
- Web of Science Core Collection This link opens in a new windowArticles from all disciplines, back to 1900 (1975 for arts/humanities).

- Searches articles in multiple applied science areas

- JSTOR [Selected Articles in Full Text] This link opens in a new windowA collection of major journals in multiple disciplines. Most titles limited to contest older than 3-5 years.
- Academic Search Complete [Selected Articles in Full Text] This link opens in a new windowA general database covering multiple areas

*Google Scholar covers a wide range of topics.*

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.

- Choosing & Usng SourcesTutorials on finding and using info.
- Article Express / Interlibrary LoanRequest articles, conference papers, and even books (check OhioLINK first) when unavailable at OSU. Request scans of print-only journal articles available at OSU.
