Where can I find resources? How might I improve my search results? How might I determine if a resource is available in the library? How might I request materials that Salem State does not have? What are some of the differences between this and that database?
This page lists and describes articles and databases available for research at the Salem State University Library. Off-campus access is restricted to the Salem State community, so if you need to use the databases, use the computers on the first floor of the library. Ask the Library Help Desk if you need assistance. Go to A-Z Browse Alphabetical List for a full list of library databases.
Saving Articles - Printing articles is limited to Salem State users. The best way is for you to save articles as a PDF/Word Document and attach it to an email, save articles on a flash/USB drive, or save articles to your cloud storage.
