The Library subscribes to many databases to help students and faculty conduct research. The majority of the information found in the databases is not available to the general public for free. Databases are provided by vendors such as EBSCO, Gale, JSTOR & LexisNexis. Some databases such as PubMed and HathiTrust are "open access" databases, which mean they are available for free without a subscription, to anyone.
The databases include:
Because most of our databases are not free, you must login with a username and password when you access these resources from off-campus.
The library catalog is a searchable collection of records of every physical item located in the library, along with an increasing number of electronic items (eBooks). Regis uses the Minuteman Library Network catalog.
When locating an item in the library, use the Call Number. The Call Number is attached to every item in the catalog and can be found on the spine of every book, or on the face of an item like a music CD. Academic libraries use the Library of Congress Classification system to catalog and organize their items.
