Databases are for Everyone

Whether you are
  • a student with a paper due
  • want to find out about your family forefathers;
  • need to find that article you read in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, or Boston Globe;
  • looking for reviews and biographical information of the author of the book group selection for this month;
  • looking for a job
  • a financial investor
  • taking a test--ASVAB, GED, GMAT, GRE, SAT, Citizenship, etc.
  • want to listen to a book
the Wellesley Free Library has Online Databases--most that can be accessed from home--calling your name.

A list of the databases can be found on the library catalog by clicking on Research and Information Tab. To access a database from home, you will need to put in your library card number after selecting the the one you need. A wonderful brochure entitled Databases from A-Z is available at the Reference Desk. Ask for the brochures on specific databases as well.

The databases have so much to offer that each week the Wellesley Reference Blog
will feature one of them. Stay Tuned!
