Library and Information Resources

The mission of the US University Library is to support the learning, research, and academic success of our students, faculty, and alumni. Please review our Library FAQ to learn more about these valuable resources.

It is important to become familiar with all the resources and related links. The information is alphabetically organized by database name with a brief content description. To obtain the User IDs & Passwords, please contact your Librarian at,using your USU e-mail or mentioning your student ID number, when requesting access.

To learn how to search the USU databases, please follow the instructions mentioned in each Tutorial, custom designed for each school program. Most of the USU databases are subscribed through EBSCO, making the learning simple. USU also subscribes to ProQuest Nursing & Allied Health Source, and JSTOR (Language and Literature -Arts & Sciences). To find articles on your topic, we recommend you start the search with the multidisciplinary database Academic Search Premier (EBSCO). Once you are familiar with this database, please check the Library FAQ to get more familiar with all the other USU electronic resources.
