Finding materials you have a citation for...

So you found a citation to an article or book that you found or your professor gave you, now what?  

  • Try searching by the title, author, or ISBN number  of a book in the CONSORT Catalog.  If you're not finding what you're looking for in CONSORT, try the OhioLink Catalog
  • Search for the title of the publication in the Journal Finder to see if we have access to that journal.  More help with Journal Finder see this tutorial.
  • Books or articles not available to borrow or access, request them through the ILL portal
