Enhancing Financial Effectiveness with the Electronic Library for Minnesota (ELM)

 

by Marilee Tuite

 

The Electronic Library for Minnesota (ELM) is an online site that provides access to a collection of databases containing thousands of popular magazines, journals, and newspapers, as well as eBooks and other information resources. ELM covers current events, regional business, consumer information, health, and many other topics. Any resident of Minnesota can access ELM resources.


MnDOT Library makes effective use of ELM by providing direct links to some of the databases. For example, MnDOT's general reference page has links to Academic Search Premier, EBSCO MegaFILE, MasterFILE Premier, and several local newspapers. The business reference page has links to BusinessSource Premier and Regional Business News, also available via ELM. This saves the cost of subscribing to these databases separately.


If you have any questions about ELM or would like help searching for a specific publication, please contact MnDOT Library staff by phone at 651-366-3791, by e-mail at library.dot@state.mn.us, or in person (8:00 am - 4:30 pm, Monday - Friday).
