Finding Books in MaagNet

To look 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 at the Reference Desk.  Note the item’s Call Number and Location, then check the Building Guide.

Finding Books in OhioLink

Look here for books not available at Maag Library but owned by other Ohio colleges and universities.

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 “abolition,” “slavery,” with the term “United States.” Two other collections of electronic resources are Wiley Online Books and the EBSCO E-Book Collections.
