Finding Books

Discovery@Kent State simultaneously searches KentLINK, OhioLINK, and several databases for books, ebook, journal articles, and other items.  Discovery may uncover cross-disciplinary research due to its broad data set. However, sometimes utilizing more narrowly focused tools, such as the catalogs and individual databases, is more effective and efficient in locating relevant results.

KentLINK and OhioLINK are library catalogs used to explore books, ebooks and other items.  Individual journal articles cannot be found using these catalogs.
