The new 1Search is one part of a complete search

1Search does not include all the content from specialized databases to which OSU subscribes. For discipline-specific searching, use the OSU Libraries' Research Databases or check the Research Guides.

Course Reserves

Use the Course Reserves tab to search for items on reserve. You may search by course name, number, instructor, or by title. Use the facets on the left to narrow down your results. Additionally, you may click on the 'Details' tab of the record and see course information in the Course Information section of the record display.
