Database of the Month

In mid 2018, Ohioans received access to 12 new resources. This month's featured new database is Very Short Introductions. It provides intelligent and serious introductions to a huge range of subjects. In this digital resource, hundreds of titles can be searched at once, opening up new pathways across subjects. Students can use Very Short Introductions to consider study options, embark on a new module, topic, or essay, or review a particular subject. Teachers and other educators can assign chapters or whole books to students. Adult learners can also gain new insights through an introduction to a topic.

If you have questions about these resources, please make an appointment with Assistant Director Rebecca Wilden at 419-562-7327, ext. 106.
