The Magale Library staff welcome you! We understand these are challenging times. We are here to help! While the physical library is closed, we have many online collections and virtual services available to help you. Here are a few highlights:
Magale Library Online Collections (available from Magale’s website)
Magale has hundreds of thousands of online databases and e-book collection resources. These resources may be accessed from on and off-campus. Simply select the desired resource links from the library’s webpage. If you are off-campus, you will be prompted to enter your SAU username and password to gain access. In most cases, the username and password are the same as your Blackboard login information. Highlights of Magale’s resources and services are also available from the Magale Library tab of Blackboard.
Search across Magale’s online collections using our discovery tool link on the library’s website: Search Electronic Collections. Or, search our Popular Databases and Popular E-book Collections available in the right menu of the library’s website. If you cannot find materials for your subject in our online collections and need an item from our physical collections, please use our virtual services to make requests.
