You can access KentLINK, OhioLINK, and the Research Databases from any computer with access to the World Wide Web. Due to licensing restrictions, you will be required to authenticate yourself as a valid University user to access some resources.
KSU Proxy allows you to connect to the campus network as if you were on campus. When prompted you will simply need to enter your Flashline username and password. Refer to the Off Campus Access section of the Library home page.
You can also access resources with OhioLink Authentication. When accessing a database, resource or requesting materials you will be asked for your University affiliation. After selecting Kent State University you will be asked for your name and banner ID #. If requesting a physical library item don't forget to select the "pick-up" location. This is your preferred campus library. OhioLink Authentication generally logs you on for a 2 hour period of time.
Welcome to the Salem Campus Library! This guide introduces you to the resources available to meet your information needs for Radiologic Technology and Imaging Sciences. Click the tabs across the top of the page to learn how to search for each type of resource.
Your first step is to identify your information need. Sometimes this is easy, but sometimes finding a topic can be challenging.
You may start with a general topic, read about it in an encyclopedia or an online reference source, and narrow your focus as you read. The "Research Starters" in Discovery@Kent State can also help you define your topic. Looking at articles that appear in journals and professional magazines and searching article databases can also give you direction.
Developing a working knowledge of your subject helps you to narrow your focus and to identify issues for further research.
Forming a good research question helps make research manageable.
