All thirteen of the Veterinary Medical Library’s public computers have been replaced! The new machines are faster, smaller (giving you more room to work), and include new widescreen monitors. These computers all have functioning sound cards, too, so you can view video tutorials in the library (please supply your own earphones.)
How many times has this happened: you’re off campus, catching up on your reading, when you follow a link to an article and see this:
Of course you can log in through the Library’s web site, but now there’s a quicker way. The OSU Libraries Off-Campus Sign-In bookmarklet will let you authenticate with the click of a button, getting you past those pesky paywalls quickly.
You can find the bookmarklet and instructions for adding it to your browser, including those on iOS mobile devices, here: http://osu.campusguides.com/off-campus-access
The OSU Libraries have purchased access to the CABI Global Health database. Global Health indexes and abstracts publications in the biomedical sciences and public health, in fields including epidemiology, environmental health, nutrition and food sciences, animal health, and more. Coverage ranges from 1910 to the present, and includes selected full text.
Global Health is included on the CAB Direct platform, so its contents will be searched by default when you use the CAB Abstracts.
