Research

Introducing JerseyClicks One Search, a single search box that let you search all statewide databases (such as MasterFile, NoveList, RefUSA, Consumer Reports, Time, Sports Illustrated, and more!) all at once. But don’t forget – these aren’t all of the databases that WTPL library card holders have access to, check out the different databases that we have available below.

How is a database different from a web search?  Although databases are accessed through your Internet browser, they are very different from searching the web. Anyone can create a website and put information up online, which makes the accuracy of many websites questionable. In contrast, a database is a resource that the library purchases, and the information that you find there is published through reliable sources. The content is written, reviewed, edited and selected by field experts.
