Physics and Astronomy: Books and E-Books

A guide to OSU library resources for students and faculty in Physics and Astronomy

Searching for books in the Library

This video will show you how you locate books, either in print or electronic format at the OSU Library. You can start here for searching for books.


Any book we do not own you can request through InterLibrary Loan. A free service at most academic libraries, the OSU Library will retrieve the book for you from another Library and you will be notified when it is available to pick-up. Normally, you can have the book for 30 days. Start here to log into the system and retrieve the form.
