Shared Resources

Through cooperation between libraries, students in north Alabama have access to a wide variety of resources.

Public libraries offer materials for the entire community, young and old, student and non-student.

School libraries are designed to serve the specific needs of their students and teachers within a limited budget.

College and university libraries support research related to the courses offered.  UAH has a strong collection in science, engineering, business, nursing, and the liberal arts but not necessarily in agriculture or architecture.

Online & print resources will vary from library to library.  These differences make it important for you to shop around as you research a topic.  Check out these libraries in addition to UAH's Salmon Library:
