This research guide is for the courses in the Office of Academic Integrity Program. You'll find library resource recommendations & search techniques for the Do You Understand Integrity course as well as the Perspectives on Authorship course. On the Help tab, you'll find other tools from OU Libraries that will help be successful in other courses you will take at OU. Tools like Lean Library, for example, which is a browser extension for access and assistance. Using Lean Library, you will spend less time figuring out if you have access to information and more time researching!

OU Libraries Session for DYUI Classes

I recorded this video for the 2020 — 2021 online classes. In the video, you'll learn about Discover's filtering options and other features that will help you find sources more quickly, two databases that are great for find quality sources for most research topics, and a browser extension that will connect you to full text articles while you are searching in Google Scholar or other academic websites.
