The library computers at the main library AND the Manross branch are down for maintenance Wednesday through Friday.
As the semester begins to draw to a close, your library can be a great research resource for those school projects and papers looming on the horizon! In addition to the great new online learning tools we added to our website this fall, we also want to remind you of our older-but-no-less awesome tools. For example, if you’re a high school or college student, did you know you can research your papers anytime, anywhere with Salem Press Online?
Salem Press Online provides full 24/7 online access to its high quality reference works — search through the databases to access information about milestone documents, great lives and great works, as well as medical treatments and health conditions. (Professor prefers print? Non-circulating print versions of these works can be found in our reference collection during regular library hours).
To access Salem Press Online, visit our website, bristollib.com. Or click the icons shown below. If you are outside the library, you will need to sign in with your valid 14-digit Bristol library card number. Simply click the “remote access” button at the bottom of the Salem Press “Welcome” page, as shown below:
Then enter you library card in the blank:
