Have you used the Electronic Library of Minnesota (ELM)? If you’ve used one of the library’s databases, chances are you have.

ELM provides Minnesota residents online access to magazine, journal, newspaper, and encyclopedia articles, eBooks and other information resources. Information is available on a variety of topics.

Many of the databases available through ELM are linked on our Research page. You may also head to www.elm4you.org. A few things you may want to look at include text of Consumer Reports articles and the LearningExpress Library.

For starting research of any kind or discovering accurate information, ELM is a great place to start.
