Research

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.

Legal Information Reference Center

Providing exclusive online full text for many of the top consumer legal reference books, Legal Information Reference Center contains hundreds of full-text publications and thousands of legal forms, with more content being added on a regular basis.

Library Catalog

Search our catalog for books, periodicals, DVDs, CDs as well as other publications and media. The catalog also compiles professional book reviews for many titles. If you need an item from another library you can put in a request and it will be sent here for you.

The catalog lets you make and save lists of items. There are also several new catalog features.
