Shapiro Library

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, science, education, arts and sciences databases. This selection of over 250 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 moved into the Library Learning Commons building on September 2, 2014. In addition to housing library services, the Library Learning Commons also includes an IT help desk, The Wolak Learning Center, the Zachos Commons Café, and the Innovation Lab and Makerspace. This 50,000 square foot, $18 million building is located at the center of campus and provides a beautiful state-of-the-art facility for students to conduct their academic work.
