  • 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
