Searching Most Berry Library Databases and the Book Catalog Together

Most, but not all of the Library's databases can be searched at the same time along with books and videos in the catalog.  To do this, go to the Berry Library homepage and make sure the default Basic Search tab is selected above the search box.  Type in your search terms and use the limiters in the left column and the Advanced Search option to refine your results.

This search tool works best for fairly narrow topics.  A broad topic can yield an overwhelming number of results!

Google Scholar

For easy access to materials found on Google Scholar that are available full-text through the Berry Library at Salem State, adjust the settings on your computer. 

  • Pull down the More menu at the top of the Google Scholar screen
  • Click on Settings
  • Select Library Links
  • Type in Salem State University
  • Check off all but Winston-Salem University

If the full-text of an article is available through Salem State databases, a link will appear to the article.
