Reminder: Online Access

  • Library resources require going through CWRU Single Sign-On.
  • The best method is to follow links from the library website.
  • When logged in and a browser window is not closed, access should continue from resource to resource.
  • Remember to close your browser when done.

Catalog and OhioLINK

The library catalog can be used to find books by keyword and subject on your topic.

In a subject search, for example, notice that there are many results for general subject heading searches such as "Genetic Psychology", "Evolutionary Psychology" and "Behavior Evolution".  There are also multiple subject categories covering particular time periods, geographic regions, specific subjects, resource types, .. etc.

TIP:  When you find a record for a book that is highly relevant for you research topic, click the subject headings to find more books on related topics.  Take a look at this book record, for example.  Click on the subject heading hyperlink for more on this topic.

General subjects, title words and keywords for searching (including exact phrase searching with quotation marks) might include:

You can also refine your catalog searches by using the Advanced Search mode for the online library catalog and applying some limits, such as a publication date range, wildcard symbols, geographic region, and additional topical keyword terms.

Also remember that using the "Search OhioLINK" button will expand your search.  This is very useful if you need a book when our copy is unavailable, or if Case Libraries does not own a specific book that you need.

You can also use Search OhioLINK if you want to expand your keyword or subject heading search from our holdings to those of the larger OhioLINK consortium.

And, you can apply the same search refinements and limits in OhioLink as you would in the Case Libraries online catalog.
