Warm welcome to the Sea Gulls!

Here's to a great fall semester!

Salisbury University Libraries are committed to providing a full range of library resources and equitable services to SU patrons who do not always visit our campus and are primarily designated as distance students or faculty.

Often distance students feel disconnected from the main campus. We would like to assure you that help is just a phone call or a click away!

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.

In this guide you will find useful information pertaining to distance library services. As the Director of External Library Services, I am your main contact person for all things libraries. If I cannot answer your question, I'll put you in touch with someone who can, including a liaison in your subject area. If you call the Research Help Desk or the Circulation Desk, they might be able to help with your questions as well.

 Email me to schedule a one-on-one Zoom session for research consultations.

Accessing the library remotely

You can now access the library databases by using your SU username and password -- the same one that you use for email and MyClasses.

You NO longer need your 14 digit barcode number on your gullcard! You do need it however, for creating an ILL record for the first time.
