  • Catalog: The catalog searches the holdings of the OU Libraries. Results will include books, e-books, microforms, government documents, AV materials, and periodicals held by Bizzell Memorial Library, the branch libraries, the special collections, and the law library. Essentially, the catalog is used to find any resources owned by the OU Libraries except articles from periodicals.
  • Databases: The databases specialize in particular subject areas (medicine, HES, engineering, etc.) and in types of content (scholarly journal articles, newspaper articles, dissertations, etc.).
  • Reference Books: A partial list of specialized reference sources for HES, including dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, directories, and citation guides. Some are available online. For additional sources, search the catalog.
  • Government Documents: State, federal, and international government publications and websites in health, medicine, statistics, and related fields.
  • Search Tips: Additional hints for more effective use of the databases and catalog.
