Visit Your Local Libraries And Their Online Resources

Your local library offers many quality resources that can help students find just the right information for that research paper or project. Most require a library card to access their databases and to check out books. Make sure you have the proper identification and documents to get a library card by calling the library or clicking on the links below. This can save you a trip.

Also, many of the metro area libraries will let you use their resources, even if you do not live in their district. Usually, you must bring a photo I.D. and a library card from you home library. Again, make a phone call and verify that your library allows this.
