Even if you do not come to the main campus of SUNY Canton, you may still use the Library's services. A login page will usually appear when first using a research database. This will be your NetID and password issued by SUNY Canton. From the Library website at you can:

Get eBooks

  • Southworth Library has access to over 150,000 eBooks.  Just use ROOsearch to search your subject, look for the 'Available Online' below a result, and access the full-text of the book from your computer or device.
  • To limit your search to just eBooks, select 'eBooks' from the "Source Types" filter on the left.
