To identify books, you can search the three main catalogs:
Indexes print and electronic books, magazines and journals, videos, music, and other resources that are owned by UA.
Indexes books, videos, music, electronic resources from college and university libraries, the State Library of Ohio, and some large public libraries in Ohio. Request online, with delivery to the Bierce or Science & Technology Library in 2-3 business days.
You can also access the OhioLink catalog by clicking on the "Search OhioLink" button in UA Library catalog.
This will repeat the search you just did in the UA catalog in the OhioLINK catalog.
Identify materials at tens of thousands of academic, public, and special libraries internationally. You can request things not owned by UA or OhioLINK via interlibrary loan -- average delivery time is 17 days.
Only the first option includes full text. Although the other sites may allow you to purchase theses, request them via InterLibrary Loan to receive copies free of charge.
