Ask For Help

USM Librarians are waiting to help.


USM Libraries fully support high school students enrolled in USM credit-bearning classes. These students have access to all USM Libraries databases, books, and services. Librarians are available by phone, email, and chat to help locate and use the resources.

Use the tabs above and boxes on the left to access a variety of resources.

USM Libraries provide a range of databases for your use in finding articles that you will otherwise not have access to using Google. Academic Search Complete is a general database that should meet all your article needs. CQ Research is an excellent database for choosing a topic and obtain reliable information.

Subject-specific databases are available for more in-depth research within certain disciplines.

Subject guides may prove especially useful.
