More Online Resources

Over 1,000 electronic databases are accessible by anyone who lives or attends school in New York State. How, you ask?  Use a library card from the NYPL.  The databases cover business, news, social science, art, health, etc. and are accessible anywhere you have an internet connection.  You can apply for a card online and it will be sent to you in the mail.

And there’s yet more digital information available through NOVELNY, the New York Online Virtual Electronic Library offered by the New York State Library.  This resource also provides over 1,000 databases covering business and finance, general reference, health and medicine, literature and news. You can log in with your New York driver’s license or non-driver state ID.

There are many benefits to using digital libraries.  For one thing, no ghosts! (Or professors of parapsychology.)
