Libraries and Reference Resources

Did you know that campus libraries offer online access to great sources such as campus library catalog, books, periodicals, Films on Demand, ProQuest Newspapers, and more? With the new ExLibris Alma search capabilities, students and faculty have access to many resources. Find something you need at another institution? Contact your library to learn about inter-library-loan (ILL) options.

The libraries of Minnesota State offer online databases and resources 24-hours a day, 7-days a week in areas from business and health, to history and current events. Faculty can embed these resources into D2L by adding the permalinks from a resource, eBook, film, newspaper, or journal article. Students will have instant access once logged into D2L via their Star Id and password.
