Librarian/Faculty Liaison Program

The Librarian/Faculty Liaison Program provides faculty with an ongoing opportunity to keep abreast of KSL services and collections. Each academic department has a designated research services librarian who maintains an awareness of the department's research and teaching needs. Departments are encouraged to include their librarian in meetings, research projects, and other activities, especially when library support is a factor to be considered. Librarians also teach classes related to research and information retrieval. We would be happy to develop a course-related instruction component for any of your classes. These classes, one or several, focus on specific research databases and other resources that students may use to for papers and projects. For more information, contact a librarian listed below.

KSL also strongly encourages each department to formally designate a faculty member as the department's library liaison so that communication remains current. The department's liaison should keep the department informed of library activities and will act as the primary contact and advocate for faculty representing the needs of the department to the library.

What are Electronic Resources?
Electronic resources are generally considered to be Internet-based or online versions of print journals, newspapers, magazines, books, manuals, and other materials. It should be noted that some journals and databases are now published in electronic format only. This trend is expected to continue.
What are electronic or ejournals?

An electronic journal (ejournal, e-journal, ej, etc.) is a digitized or online version of a printed journal, such as the Physical Review A. Like most ejournals, this journal exists in both print and electronic formats. Collectively, the Case libraries provide access to thousands of electronic journals. This includes journals that are licensed independently by the Case libraries, journals in the OhioLINK Electronic Journal Center, and a select number of journals that are freely available over the World Wide Web.

Users should be aware that many titles licensed by Case are not accessible from the OhioLINK EJC. An example of this is Science Online, the Web version of Science Magazine.

What are research databases?

A database is a collection of information organized into a particular format. Every item in a database has its own record and each of these records is itself divided into specific fields of information (e.g., author, title, etc.) In this respect, a telephone book can be defined as a database.

An electronic research database is a computerized collection of information in digital format. The Case libraries provide access to several hundred research databases, many of which include the full text of journal and newspaper articles. View Research Databases for a complete list of databases provided by the Case Libraries.

Users should be aware that several titles subscribed by Case are not accessible from the OhioLINK Research Databases list. An example of this is IEEE Xplore. IEEE Xplore provides full text access to IEEE transactions, journals, magazines and conference proceedings published since 1988 and all current IEEE standards.

How do I access the Databases from Home?

If you are a student, faculty, or staff at Case, you may access the databases with software-free remote authentication to OhioLINK electronic databases and journals. When you're away from your own computer or away from campus, logon to OhioLINK and choose a database or electronic journal.

You'll be prompted to enter Case as your school, your name and Case Account Number (your SS# is no longer used), and your library

For current Case enrolled and employed individuals, it's a simple way to have 2 hours of remote access to OhioLINK-only electronic content, and you can reconnect as often as you need to use the reources! Use any computer with a current web-browsr. (Remote authentication to Case-only resources requires VPN software on your computer.) Use PIN authentication for OhioLINK-only resources across the U.S. and around the world!
