Online Resources

Meem Library subscribes to several scholarly online resources. These online resources can be accessed from the computers located on the first floor of the library, from one’s dorm room, and in the faculty and student computer labs. The Digital Loeb Classical Library, FirstSearch, Gale Reference Databases, JSTOR, Mango Languages, Naxos Spoken Word Library, and the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), can be accessed by current St. John’s faculty, students and staff from home via remote patron authentication using your college network login credentials. The Chronicle of Higher Education and Vault can be accessed by using your St. John’s College email to create an account within each site.

If you would like assistance on how to use the online resources, or how to connect to these resources, please contact Jennifer Sprague by phone at 505-984-6041 or via email at jennifer.sprague(at)sjc.edu.
