Shapiro Library supports all SNHU students whether they are online or on campus. Using innovative services and technologies, the library delivers information and instruction necessary for academic success and lifelong learning.
Shapiro Library provides online access to and instruction on leading business, education, arts and sciences databases. This selection of over 100 databases contains full-text journals, magazines, reports and newspapers chosen to support the curriculum.
In the off chance you need an article or book not available in one of our online databases, Shapiro Library’s Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery will obtain your request and send it electronically or via U.S. mail (for those students living outside of Manchester, NH).

For students who use the main campus, Shapiro Library will move into the new Learning Commons and Library building in the fall of 2014. SNHU’s Learning Commons and Library was designed to serve a growing student population. In addition to housing library services, the Learning Commons will also include an IT help desk, the Learning Center, a café, and a media production suite. This new 50,000 square foot, $18 million building will be located at the center of campus and will provide a beautiful state-of-the-art facility for students to conduct their academic work.
