The Shapiro Library’s collections provide knowledge-based resources essential to the academic endeavors of the SNHU community. Here are three main ways that you can get started using our databases, resources and tools.
Start your research in theMulti-Search database search box on the homepage of the library
The Multi-Search searches across library resources including the physical and electronic collections of books/ ebooks, articles, databases, videos, and reference resources.
Type a keyword or two into the the Multi-Search search box and search the many books, e-books, journals, magazines, newspapers and, reports in our collection. You may limit your search by content type, subject or publication date.
HINT: When searching in the Multi-Search, look for the recommended databases at the top of the search results page. Multi-Search can be a great place to start, but won't include medicine specific limiters that can assist with your searches.
You can sort the databases per subject to get to the most relevant database for your research topic.
HINT: Some of our databases are not searchable through the Multi-Search or only a portion is discoverable. Go directly into the databases for the most in-depth searches in subject areas. We've chosen a few of our favorite nursing databases- explore the options in the menu on the left to learn more.
