This guide is intended to help you with your library research. You will find databases, journals, ebooks, reference books, and selected datasets to help with your literature review, or provide background information on Interdisciplinary Studies.



Welcome to the Lyman Beecher Brooks Library!

This guide is designed to bring together the many multidisciplinary resources available electronically via the Library. Of course, you should also consult our plentiful print collections in our library catalog.  

Most of the resources listed in this guide are subscription based and limited to current students, faculty and staff. If you are not on campus, you may be prompted to enter your NSU network ID. login information to access the databases.
