What are Library databases?

Databases are reference and learning tools that contain information and training modules.

Databases let you:

  • Research topics
  • Locate abstracts and/or full-text articles from magazines, newspapers, and encylopedias
  • Learn and practice! Includes languages, academic and citizenship test preparation and job skills

Most databases are available from home with a valid Tompkins County Public Library card.

If you need help or wish to speak to a Library staff member, please call the Adult Reference Desk at 272-4556.

We appreciate your feedback; please report comments, problems and/or solutions by submitting the online help form. Thank you!
