Databases are information gold mines

Let’s say you’re trying to locate an old article from The New York Times. Go to, click on the research tab, and there it is: New York Times Historical, with stories and images from 1851 to 2001. Or maybe you’re moving to a new house, and you’d like to get a list of new neighbors. Reference USA can help. Those two databases are on a long list to which AADL subscribes, providing library users with gold mines of information about magazines, newspapers, arts, literature, biography, business and investment, college, careers, and education, genealogy, health, history, kids and teens, legal resources, and science and technology. And here’s a tip: You can access these databases from home, business, or school, through the library’s web site.
