Databases A to Z Print Page

Temporary Users

A library card number is required for many of these resources.

Temporary library card numbers are available if you need immediate access. You must add "290090" to the front of the temporary account number when logging into one of our databases that requires a library card.


What is a database?

Databases are services that offer access to articles and other valuable information.  The library pays for subscriptions to these services and makes them available to the public and library cardholders.  The kind of information you find in a database is usually more reliable than what you might find doing a search on a regular web search engine like Google.  These are good resources to use when conducting research for school, or even personal use.
