Plant and Soil Sciences: Research at the Library - finding BOOKS
Searching for books in the Library
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.
Locating a thesis or dissertation, can be rewarding, since the bibliography can provide additional resources.
The dissertation/theses database, Theses and Dissertations Global, covers both national and international dissertations. If full text is not available for a particular dissertation, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan. The Library will determine if there is a copy to circulate, and will contact you when it arrives for you to pickup from Circulation & Information Desk.
The OSU repository, ShareOK, is being populated with OSU dissertations and theses. You can search by keyword.
