Berry Library Interlibrary Loan

  • Though you will find many helpful books in the Berry Library Collections - print and electronic - you will often identify titles Berry Library does not own.
  • Do not despair! 
  • Berry Library can borrow books from other libraries for you to use.
    • Often, these books can be renewed.
    • If you should need them longer than the lending period, the Interlibrary Loan staff will be happy to request the book from another library.
  • The link above will show what information you need to supply. 
    • Key tips: For the question "The maximum amount you would be willing to pay should there be a cost to obtain the material," put 0.
    • There is seldom a charge for Interlibrary Loan materials. 
    • In the unlikely event that there is a modest fee, the Interlibrary Loan staff will always check with you first.
  • Word of advice: Have your Clipper Card ready.
    • The barcode on the back of the card is your Berry Library card number.
    • It is critical to making a successful Interlibrary Loan request.

Bibliographies - Identify Books Beyond Berry Library

Off-Campus Access to Databases

While on campus (in Berry Library, a residence hall, or a courtyard) you will be able to directly access library databases. 

However, when you try to research away from the boundaries of Salem State's campus network, you have to show our system that you are a member of the Salem State community. This is what you do:

Using Databases Off-Campus

  • When prompted, use your Salem State network/wireless network user name & password to log into resources when you're off-campus.
  • Students, use your Navigator login credentials.
  • Faculty, use your Polaris login credentials.
  • If you've forgotten your password, use the "Forgot Password?" links on the Navigator and Polaris login pages.
