Having trouble finding the full text of articles? The university library has access to a wealth of information, but if you’re off campus, there are a couple extra clicks to get there.
If you go to the library website and see the following, click the red icon next to Off Campus
It will redirect you to the single sign-on page, and then back to the library home page. Now you have access to everything just as if you were on campus!
Zoom (called CarmenZoom at Ohio State) is a web conferencing tool like WebEx or any other you’ve already used. Zoom was adopted by the university this past fall, and it’s straightforward to use for audio-only or audio and video meetings. Up to 300 people can attend a single Zoom meeting, and participants can view the meeting from any device. You can share your screen, your webcam, or both simultaneously.
