Databases

Why use databases?

With millions of websites online, it can be difficult to determine which ones are credible and which ones are out-of-date, inaccurate or biased.  Our subscription databses are professionally researched and maintained to provide accurate, up to date information during each use.

Access to all databases is available to anyone who is inside the library, including wireless users.

Databases that can be accessed outside the library have a "Remote" link and require a library card.

Click on the links under "Subject" to visit the library's webpage on resources about a particular topic.
