Dont PAY for Articles

 Click on FIND IT and there is no full text link?

Dont pay for research articles through Google or other search engines on the open web.  We have access to thousands of peer-reviewed and scholarly articles for your research.

If you are having trouble accessing an article feel free to email me or another librarian  with the article citation and we we will make every attempt to hunt it down for you. 

There is also the Interlibrary Loan option (see box below). Fill out the citation form and the article usually arrives electronically in 5+ days to your Otterbein email.



CARDINAL CARDS - It is impossible to access any OhioLink databases without a currrent Cardinal Card.  Cards will be mailed to you after you are enrolled in class.  If your card is not working, you can email the library at library@otterbein.edu or call the Circulation Desk at 614-823-1215.

** When you are OFF CAMPUS.  You may search the OPAL catalog for books and materials immediately. When you click on any database to search for articles the Otterbein web site will ask you for your user name and password.  This is the same one you use for your Otterbein Web Mail. Remember it is Case-specific. So if your password has capital letters in it, type it in exactly.   

** When you are in Ohiolink or the EJC (Electronic Journal Center) You will be asked to choose an institution (Otterbein) and for your name and your Barcode number.  This is your Cardinal Card number that starts with 7777-- enter all 16 digits.

Interlibrary Loan Option

Distance Education Students: Access to Journals in Otterbein's Library


We can send interlibrary loan articles directly to your email account. Additionally, the interlibrary loan department will provide distance education students with articles from print journals owned by Otterbein. These articles will also be delivered to your email account.


What you must do:

1. You must be able to access the online ILL form. This requires a cardinal card.

2. You must indicate that you are a distance education student in the cited in: field.


This service is only for distance education students who are unable to regularly come to campus. Any requests for locally owned articles made by faculty, staff, or non-distance learning students are automatically cancelled. The only way we know you are distance education is if you indicate your status on the ILL form.

3. Email. We prefer that you use your Otterbein email account. However, if you have a preferrred address (such as myname@yahoo.com) you can enter that information in the Cited in: field as well. If for any reason your preferred address does not work, we will then send the article to your Otterbein account. For more information about accessing your Otterbein Email account go to http://www.otterbein.edu/itweb/e-mail/
