Major eBook Databases
Many of our Databases have eBooks in their collections, but these have the most. You can find any of these in the Databases A-Z list.
Gale Virtual Reference Library
These are books, articles, movies, and other materials your faculty member has put on reserve at one of the USM Libraries. Physical copies are at the Access Services desk in the library on the campus where your class is held. These can be checked out for 2 hours (unless otherwise notes) and can only be used in the library.
Electronic Reserves can be found on your BrightSpace course or through the ARES online system.
Borrowing something USM doesn’t have
