Welcome to the Oklahoma State University Library Information Literacy pages. The following pages will introduce you to the library and assist you in finding the information you need.

Primary Resources

  • The OSU Library Catalog is a searchable database of the resources available at the OSU Library. It includes entries for books, journals, maps, databases, videos, etc. that are at the Stillwater campus libraries. Please remember that in a library catalog you are searching to see if the library has a book, but can not search the contents of the book. You are searching to see if the library subscribes to the journal, but you can not search for specific articles. Refer to the online tutorial or ask at the reference desk if you have questions.
  • The Electronic Indexes and Databases List includes alphabetic and a subject division listings for the indexes and databases available via the Internet and CD-ROM to the OSU community. Please click the information button next to the title for more information about the index or database.
  • The Full-Text Periodical Titles and Coverage List is an alphabetic (rendering) of the online periodicals to which the library subscribes. Please read the dates covered columns because coverage varies. Also, some links are directly to a journal homepage. Other links are to the database which includes the full-text coverage. In that case, use the information in your citation to search for the text. Ask at the reference desk if you need help.
  • The OSU Library Academic Department Online Resources List provides quick links to the most frequently used electronic journals and indexes and library news tidbits for each academic department.
