On Sunday, a patron asked if we had a Chilton’s Manual for a 1989 Chevy Silverado, because he couldn’t figure out how to change the time in his truck. For those who don’t know, Chilton publishes do-it-yourself automobile repair manuals. We didn’t have a physical manual, but, lucky for him, we have access to the Chilton’s Library online. You can access it from home too if you have a current Iowa City Public Library card. Just go to our Online Resources page and click on “Chilton Library” under “Premium Databases at ICPL.”
Because of licensing restrictions our databases are available only to residents of Iowa City and of areas covered by contracts for library service: rural Johnson County and the cities of Hills, Lone Tree, and University Heights.
