Books & Ebooks

The library catalog contains a wide variety of materials. This includes print materials, electronic resource (including ebooks), CDs & DVDs. You can search by keyword, title, author and more.

Sometime, you may be looking for an item the Franklin Library does not have in its collection. If you are an Ohio resident, you can search OhioLINK, a consortium of universities and colleges in Ohio that allows you to borrow from their collections. You can request and pick-up materials at the Franklin Library, or choose to pick it up at an institution near you. Limited to print books, CDs & DVDs.

The library subscribes to several databases that provide access to ebooks. Ebooks can be accessed anywhere with your student log-in.

Grammarly & Online Writing Review

Grammarly screenshotGrammarly won't be able to provide feedback or give you the quality feedback you'd expect from an experienced, human writing instructor. Instead, it's an automated proofreader and your personal grammar coach that instantly checks your sentences for grammar, punctuation, and style. Register for a free account using your Franklin University student email address.

The Online Writing Review service from the Learning Commons includes reviewing student writing for critical issues including structure and coherence.
