Check out Electronic Library of Minnesota's New Portal

The Electronic Library of Minnesota (ELM) has redesigned its website to make accessing electronic databases even more user-friendly. Overwhelmed by having to decide which database is best for the patron's informational needs? Do you want a list of the databases most suitable for each grade level? ELM's redesign now features lists of databases by topic or content type. Just choose the appropriate topic or content type from the drop-down menu and a list of the most relevant databases will be generated. There are also lists of suitable databases for elementary, middle school and high school students.

If you are looking databases that have a particular periodical available electronically, ELM can also help. Click on "Publications A to Z" and enter the title of the publication. A list of ELM databases featuring that publication will be generated.

In addition, there are sections for students, teachers and librarians, making it easier to take advantage of what ELM has to offer.
