We recommend starting here...
OSU Catalog - Search for books, e-books, and other materials owned by OSU Libraries, Columbus and regional campuses. Borrow Materials online.
WorldCat@OSU - allows you to search the holdings of libraries from all over the world (including OSU and OhioLINK libraries), as well as content from thousands of journals and millions of electronic books and web-accessible documents.
When requesting a book...
When using your seven digit COTC ID number to request a book, remember that your ID number must be preceded by CT. For example: CT1234567. If your COTC ID number is only six digits long, put CT0 at the start of the number. For example: CT0123456
Other Good Options...
