Search Strategies



Off campus?

If you are connecting to a database from off campus, you'll need to know your Shoreline username and password for all guides with the symbol.

Still can't find it?

Our library has a service called interlibrary loan. You can request a book or journal article that the Shoreline College Library does not have.
