*While a substantial number of our current and past reference is available online now, Salem will be updating some of these works in the future.

The online database includes a number of up-to-the-minute features:

Complimentary with print purchase

  • Fully supported

  • Unlimited users at your library

  • Remote access from home or dorm room

  • Immediate access via online registration

  • A simple, intuitive interface

  • User profile areas for students and patrons

New Additions

Salem Press has recently updated our online platform with all new features, search capabilities and a great new design. It is now easier than ever before to access all Salem Press' award-winning content in one database.

Users now have improved search functions to easily find the information they are looking for. Plus, research is made simpler with options to Save, Print, or Email any article in the database. There is also an added feature that provides a formal citation for each article in either MLA, APA or Chicago style.

Those with prior purchases of Salem reference can activate their content online or with a phone call. Just dial (800) 221-1592.

Qualifying Institutions

Activation of the Salem Press database entitles a library to unlimited use of that title by patrons or students using the library both on site and remotely. Salem allows one online activation per print copy purchased. If your library system, school district, or college has multiple libraries, please call (800) 221-1592 for special multi-site pricing that will allow sharing.


Salem Online is available to consortia, statewide programs or other multiple-institution purchasing groups. For details, please call us at: (800) 221-1592.
