STEM 2601H -- BSMD Honors Seminar: Books

Finding Books in MaagNet

Look here for books, government documents, e-books (electronic books) and other materials owned by Maag Library. Search by subject, keyword, author, or title. To locate appropriate subject headings, consult the Library of Congress Subject Headings, a multi-volume set of large red books shelved behind the Reference Desk in the Reference Room.

Once an item has been selected, copy or print the publication information (author, title, publisher, date) found on the title page of the book or from the catalog record so the item can be properly cited later. For assistance in creating Works Cited or Bibliographic References pages see Citing Resources.

Finally, note the item’s Call Number and Location, then check the Building Guide to find the exact location.

Finding Books in OhioLink

Look here for books not available at Maag Library but owned by other Ohio colleges and universities. Some OhioLINK libraries may use Medical Subject Headings (MESH) in addition to or instead of Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH).

An item may be requested from other OhioLINK institutions, if its status indicates it is Available. Typically books requested through the OhioLink Central Catalog take 3-5 business days (Monday through Friday) to arrive. To see the status of a request, check your circulation record. Once an item’s status shows as OhioLINK Rec’d, the item has arrived at Maag Library and is available at the Circulation Desk. Follow the OhioLINK Borrowing Service procedure to request them.

For search help, see About the OhioLINK Central Catalog

Finding Electronic Books

In addition to print monographs, some full-text, scholarly, scientific monographs may be found through the Electronic Book Center (EBC). Use keyword search terms such as “Biology,” “Cell Biology,” Molecular Biology” or “Cytology.” Three other collections of electronic resources are Safari Books, Wiley Online Books, and the EBSCO E-Book Collections.
