Maximizing Library Resources: A Guide for Faculty
During the COVID-19 closure, the Hayden Memorial Library is up and running with online services. The librarians are here to help you and your students with virtual research sessions, online research help, and more.

Library Databases

Our library databases are up and running, and can be accessed using your network credentials (same login as Canvas). Through our databases, we offer magazine, newspaper, and scholarly journal articles. These can serve as alternate course readings (by providing students with a permalink to the item.) Library databases also contain primary sources, videos, art and photography images, and encyclopedia/reference material.

See our complete list of databases:
