LDT in the University Libraries

Welcome to the Learning Design & Technology (LDT) research guide. We hope you'll find it to be a rich resource of databases, websites, tips, and tricks to help you succeed in your program. Use the tabs across the top to access:

Don't forget to use the Ask Us! link if you ever need help. You can IM us or call us during regular Research & Information Desk hours, or send us an email and we'll get back to you within a day (or two, on the weekends).


Google vs Research Databases

The image below illustrates a search for "smartphones" in Google and in one of our subscription databases.  Note that there are many differences, and depending on what sort of information you're looking for, Google isn't always the best choice.  Click the image to display full size.



Getting Started at the University Libraries

  1. To borrow items from the libraries, you need your BGSU photo ID and a current record in the library database. For more detailed information, see Borrowing, Renewing, and Requesting
  2. For remote access to the online research databaseslogin in with your BGSU user name and password (same as for campus email, MyBGSU, and BGSU lab and library computers.)
  3. If the University Libraries doesn't have what you need, chances are that OhioLINK does. OhioLINK is the 80+ academic (and some public) libraries that lend their resources to one another through an online requesting system. Look for the "Request this item" button in the OhioLINK catalog. For more detailed information, see OhioLINK requesting.
  4. We're here to assist you! If you need help using the library, can't find what you want, have an assignment and need help getting started, Ask Us! for immediate help. Besides drop-in help, the University Libraries offer Individual Research Appointments for undergraduates & graduate students.

Requesting Locally Owned Articles

The University Libraries is offering a new service.  Basically, if BGSU owns a journal in print, you can request an article from that journal via Interlibrary Loan and have it delivered electronically to your desktop, no matter where you are.

Requesting an Electronic Copy of an Article Only Available in Print:

  • If you identify an article that is not available in full text, enter the citation via interlibrary loan using ILLIAD. If BGSU owns the print copy, you will receive a copy of the article electronically. Items not owned by BGSU will be requested via the regular interlibrary loan process.
  • Distance students should add text in the note field of each request in ILLIAD that they are a "distance education student."

Turn Around Times For ILLIAD Requests

  • Articles From BGSU: 1 Business Day
  • Articles From Other Institutions: Approximately 2 Weeks.

For more information, contact or call Interlibrary Loan at 419-372-8726.
