Books for Chemistry

Scholarly journals are the main source of research for chemistry. Books, on the other hand, are often useful because they will collect and summarize the major trends in current research and can provide comprehensive overviews to a topic.

Interlibrary Loan (Books)

If you cannot locate a book, use the Interlibrary Loan Forms.  A librarian will locate a library that owns the material and will send for what you need.

Use this form to send for books, media, government documents, dissertations, etc., that are not available through OhioLINK and SearchOhio.
