Finding Materials

How Do You Find What We Have in the UNH Library?

Depending on what you are looking for, use the following links on our home page:

1) Use our online library catalog to search for books, videos, atlases, etc. that are owned by the UNH Library, jot down the call number, then go and get them.  We have an ‘open stacks’ system, which means you have access to the shelves. There are a few exceptions - Permanent and Course Reserve materials must be requested at the Circulation Desk and Government Documents must be requested at the Information Desk.  Ask for assistance at any time.

2) For periodicals (magazines, newspapers, scholarly journals), use the Journals at the MKP Library link on our home page  to see what we have. Use the search box to look for journals by title, ISSN, title keyword, exact title, or browse by topic.

3) If you are looking for articles, use periodical indexes (paper ones are listed in our catalog) and databases (described below).  More detailed instructions are in our Finding Articles guide.

4) Subscription databases include online books and periodical indexes, and are accessible from links on our home page, or computers in the Library: subject and alphabetical lists of our databases & major providers are on all computer desktops.  A few database are: LexisNexis Academic, ENGnetBASE (online engineering books), CCH Tax Research, InfoTracOnefile, PsycINFO, Criminal Justice, Education Journals, and many more.  ProQuest databases allow you to customize the screen for several different languages, including Chinese, Turkish, Spanish and Dutch.

How to Use the Proxy: You use the proxy connection for access to subscription material on the web, so it is useful to know how to do this.  Subscription means we subscribe, or pay, for access to these materials.  Enter your UNH network log-in to access databases and full-text electronic journals.
