The State of Ohio

Ohio Books

Books on Ohio History

Subject headings for items in which Ohio is the main character will always begin with "ohio" and then are narrowed by the topic and then geographically and/or chronologically. However, you may also need to search by the topic and then narrow your search geographically to Ohio. Be careful to avoid items cataloged as fiction unless you are specifically looking for items of this nature.

Some examples

Ohio -- History

Ohio -- Biography

Ohio -- History -- Civil War, 1861-1865 -- Personal narratives
