Databases are a great way to search through a wide range of electronic resources, including newspapers, encyclopedias, and scholarly journals. Here are some general, multidisciplinary starting points:
If you need an article from a journal that is not available online through the SU Libraries, we can acquire it for you through ILLiad and send it to you via e-mail. This is a free service available to all SU students.
If you are requesting an article from a journal that the SU Libraries do own in print, when submitting your article request through ILLiad, please be sure to indicate in the notes field: "SU Abroad student - SU owns journal".
NOTE: We are not able to send books or other print material overseas through the postal service.
If you don't have an account, go to ILLiad, follow the link for "First Time Users" and fill in the form to create a new account. You'll be able to start using ILLiad right away.
