Find a Book

Catalogs

The Beeghly and OhioLINK catalogs contain information about the print books available to you. The Beeghly Catalog will also contain links to our ebooks. Improve your search with our catalog how-to.

Databases

While the catalog will have links to books in our ebook databases, the advantage of going directly to those databases is the ability to search the entire book, rather than what is in the catalog record (usually title, author, subjects, sometimes a summary and table of contents).

You can also use Google Books to search the entire text of print books. Find a book with your topic in the text, then get it through the catalogs.

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.
