As an SU student, you have free 24/7 access to premium content found in the library’s research databases. These databases contain articles from thousands of periodicals, as well as e-books, images and more. If you are not on-campus, you will need to log in to verify you are an authorized user.

Getting Started

Access the Databases by way of an SU Library page, such as a research guide or database list and click the name of the database (e.g., Academic Search Complete, LexisNexis Academic, etc.)

OR

Enter your search terms in the OneSearch box on the library home page to search most of our databases and the catalog at one time.

A log in box will appear.

Log in using your SU username and password.

The desired database should now open on your screen.

Some databases also ask you to agree to terms of use or to log into a personal folder. Follow the onscreen instructions.
