I'm Helen Clements, the library liaison for the Department of Human Development and Family Science.
This guide is intended to help you discover the wealth of resources available through your library (and beyond).
The tabs at the top of the page link to various information sources. A few of them include drop-downs for additional information.
I hope you'll find the guide useful; please feel free to give me feedback. I value your help to improve this guide for everybody!
My contact information is at the right. I'd be glad to make an appointment to meet with you.
I owe thanks to a number of other librarians for either allowing me to reuse information from one of their guides, or for their editorial assistance. At OSU, my special thanks go to Dan Chaney, Roy Degler, Nicole Sump-Crethar, Hui-Fen Chang, and David Oberhelman.
The sections on reference books and include a number of references to publications in which OSU faculty members in Human Development and Family Science for which they have served as editors or authors of articles.
I constructed the list of journals constructed by selecting the titles of recent journals from citations in the faculty members' curriculua vitae.
I apologize in advance If I have made important omissions.
I have also looked at a number of LibGuides prepared for other schools in constructing this guide, and have found a wealth of suggestions about what to include. (Mistakes of inclusion or omission are my own.) Among the guides I've consulted have been those of Merinda McLure, Colorado State University, Rita Marinko, Iowa State University, Jennifer Farquhar, Suffolk County Community College, Anitra Gates, Mercyhurst College, and Janet Anderson, Barrington High School, Barrrington 220 Schools.
