Visit the Ask A Librarian page to get assistance via email or chat. Librarians can help with library searches, finding and accessing electronic or print resources, or any other research need.
Electronic items make up the bulk of the library collection. You have access to thousands of articles, eBooks, news sources, media, and other resources in electronic format. Start with a Primo Library Search or choose a Database and start searching. You will be prompted to log in with your Chemeketa username and password to access items online.
Students may find and request books using Primo Library Search. When requesting the book, indicate the desired pick-up location (e.g. Salem Campus, YVC, Polk Center) or follow instructions for having items mailed. For information on borrowing textbooks, visit our College Lending Library guide.
The Library Research Guides provide support for Chemeketa courses, subjects areas, and specific research skill topics such as citing sources, evaluating sources, using article databases, and finding statistics.
