Resources for everyone

If you are a resident of Oregon and frequent Corvallis you can apply for an OSU Community Borrowers Card in order to borrow print materials during your visits to the Valley Library. While you are here, you also have ‘walk-in” use of our e-resources. Off-campus use of these resources is limited to current staff and faculty and currently enrolled students of Oregon State University.

We have prepared online guides to free e-resources which we hope will be useful in identifying information on your chosen topic from off-campus.

  • Databases available to everyone includes information on locating open-access journals and databases.
  • Keeping Current with Research provides tutorials on setting up RSS feeds for journals and other suggestions for tracking research.
  • Subject Research Guides provide general information about researching a variety of subject areas. While these guides reference licensed resources, they can be useful for their suggestions of public domain resources as well.
