Accessing Full-Text Articles and Inter Library Loan!

As of January 1, 2019, Librarians are no longer able to order articles on your behalf. Instead, we can talk you through how to order articles (using ILLIAD) or troubleshoot with you on the best way to quickly access immediately available articles. Please feel free to contact me ( or 419.383.4214) with any questions.

Assesing the Quality of the Journal

Are you looking to publish? Maybe you get emails and you are not sure how legitimate or not a journal happens to be? Learn from a researcher and librarian on how you can assess the quality of journal. Just because it is in "PubMed" does not mean it is legitimate. Instead...check and see if it is Currently Indexed in Medline.

Slides are attached and check out this nifty list!
