Learn more with databases at ICPL

by on April 10th, 2015

With subscriptions to nearly 50 databases, the Iowa City Public Library has the resources patrons need to learn a new language, research or check stocks, or find information about an ancestor or loved one.

The Library’s databases can be accessed at www.icpl.org under the Reference and Research tab on the left side of the web site. Click Online Resources and watch the instructional video on the screen to learn more about the information at your fingertips.

The Library’s databases are organized by category and alphabetically.

Every database can be accessed from the Library, but some can be accessed at home. This option is available to Iowa City residents, as well as those who live in rural Johnson County, or the cities of Hills, Lone Tree, and University Heights. Patrons wishing to access a database at home must have a Library Card.

Databases that can’t be accessed at home are noted in the description.

“Databases are another great resource for Library patrons,” Library Assistant Jen Eilers says. “They have the capability to learn so much with just the click of a button.”

For more information, contact the Library at (319) 356-5200.
