      List of places to find electronic books: http://www.oit.edu/libraries/find/books/ebooks
      Safari Techbooks
      Netlibrary
      Gale Virtual reference library
    • How does it work?
    • What if I want print?
      For students in Oregon and Washington –Summit
      If you are near a summit school (http://orbiscascade.org/map/) you may set up a “visiting summit borrowers account”
      For students outside those areas – Worldcat
      Use worldcat to search for items, enter your zip code to find out libraries near you with the item
    • Let’s see an example of Worldcat
    • Finding Articles
      Electronic resources by subject
      What is the difference between scholarly and popular journals?
      How do I get the full article?
    • Let’s find some articles
      Think of a topic while we open up a browser so you can follow along
    • What if I know the name of the journal?
      Use e-journals in the quick search to see if we have it electronically.
    • What if full text is not available?
      Interlibrary loan
      http://www.oit.edu/libraries/find/articles/borrow/borrow-request
      Articles, even those OIT owns in paper only, will be sent to your OIT email
      A library near you
      You can use WorldCat to find out if a library near you has a journal the same as we did for books
    • Where do I start?
      Find by subject: http://www.oit.edu/libraries/find/subject
      Electronic resources by subject: http://www.oit.edu/libraries/find/articles/subject
      Contact the librarian: http://www.oit.edu/libraries/distance/getting-help/contact-the-distance-education-liaison-librarian
    • Why can’t I just Google it?
      Google Scholar: http://scholar.google.com
      In scholar preferences, set up OIT as your library for instant full text
      Google Books: http://books.google.com
      Many titles are only previews
      Under “Get this book” click on “Find in a library”
    • Other Questions?
      What is my logon?
      The library logon is the same as your blackboard and OIT email, first.last. The password is the same too.
      What if my subject doesn’t have a guide yet?
      Let us know what you want a guide on, we will build it. Until then try the more general subjects under electronic resources by subject: http://www.oit.edu/libraries/find/articles/subject
      Where do I get more info?
      The library has lots of pages to help you on your research. Browse the website under Help! To find out more. If you don’t see what you are looking for, contact Dawn.
