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
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
