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, Naxos Spoken Word Library, the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), and the Gale Databases can be accessed by St. John’s faculty, students and staff from home via remote patron authentication.

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)
