Salem Online

Provides access to content from Salem Press print titles to purchasers of those print titles.  A source which recalls the plots of the world’s great works of literature and provides a concise summary of books worth reading. What began as a one-book publishing philosophy grew to become the foundation for a growing list of reference works commonly know as “Magill Books.” Each Magill Book is designed with a broad range of users in mind: the student approaching a subject for the first time, the reader trying to decide which book to read for pleasure, the teacher needing a quick reminder of a character’s name in a book read many years ago, the graduate student reviewing for orals, the reference desk librarian needing to quickly answer a question for a patron.
