We spend a lot of time talking about how to find articles and journals in the library, but that doesn't mean we're not a great place to find books!
From the library homepage, choose OSU Library Catalog from the Quicklinks:
Everyone knows that images can make a paper or presentation more visually appealing and more effective.Â But images, just like other types of sources, should be used ethically, with respect to the person who created them.
This is especially important when you are giving presentations that might end up on video, or posted to the web.Â Luckily, it is easy to find images you can use with no worries.
Need to find "scholarly" or "peer-reviewed" or "academic" articles? Improve your odds with EBSCOhost databases!
By checking a couple of boxes on a search form, you can improve your odds of finding the sourcesÂ that will work for an assignment requiring "peer-reviewed" or "scholarly" articles.
This trick won't guarantee that you find scholarly articles, but it will improve your odds by filtering out a lot of sources that are clearly not scholarly.
From the library homepage, choose Databases from the Quicklinks list.
Use Google Scholar to get academic sources from the library - we already paid for them, so you don't have to
Launched in 2004, Google Scholar provides a way to use the power of Google to search for scholarly articles, presentations, reports and more.Â While Google Scholar can be a great tool for finding scholarly sources, those sources aren't always free.Â Anyone who has used this tool has clicked on a likely-looking resource, only to be taken to a page where they can get the article, if they pay for it.
