Finding Electronic Books and Articles (Minnesota Residents)

If you are a Minnesota resident, your local public library is an excellent place to find information and helpful library staff members. Additionally, you have access to the full collection of the Electronic Library for Minnesota (ELM). ELM provides access to electronic resources for students by grade level, consumer researchers, teachers, etc. No matter what your information need, ELM has something for you.

If you are physically located in Minnesota, your access to the ELM resources will typically be automatic. If you have issues accessing the resources, your local public library is a good place to ask your questions.

Medical Research - Getting Help

Your local public library is a great place to start if you have questions related to health. However, if your questions are in-depth, you may want to seek out a medical librarian. There are a number of health libraries across the state that provide research assistance to the public. The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) provides a searchable directory to locate contact information for these libraries.
