We have numerous collections to support our students' information needs, including:
1. Course Reserves:
Professors sometimes put books, articles, or other items on "reserve" for students to use for their courses. We also have purchased and put on reserve current textbooks for selected classes. Students can search for Course Reserves at the Course Reserves webpage, and reserve items can be requested at the Library Service Desk on the first floor of the GAC.
We subscribe separately to nearly 900 journals, some in print and some in electronic form. We have access to tens of thousands more through databases (see the next item in this list).
These range from databases heavily oriented to journal articles, whether full-text or abstracted, to streaming videos to digitized newspapers and books to digitized primary sources to datasets. The "Start your search here" box on the Libraries home page searches only a couple of general databases. To search other databases, click on the "Advanced Search for Additional Databases and Search Options" link, which is below "Start your search here," and follow the directions. We also have an A-to-Z database list that lists all of our databases in alphabetical order.
5. Manuscripts, archives, old photographs, maps, and other original materials:
The Nabb Center on the fourth floor of the GAC has original materials relating to Salisbury University and Delmarva as well as the United States and world history. These items may be labeled Nabb Center, University Archives, or Special Collections. See the Nabb Collections page for details.
6. DVDs and CDs:
We have a variety of DVDs and CDs, including foreign-language films and a large music collection. These items can be found by using the "Start your search here" box. The boxes for them can be found in the Pit on the first floor of the GAC or in the south reading room on the third floor of the GAC; take the box to the Library Service Desk on the first floor to get the actual disc.
7. Government Documents:
The SU Libraries are a federal depository library as well as being a Maryland state depository library. That means we collect selected federal and state documents. Print copies are found in the third-floor south reading room, but we now mostly get electronic versions. The electronic versions can be found using the "Start your search here" box on the Libraries home page.
