In our own backyard… Thing 8: Databases (HomeACCESS)

Welcome to week 8! This week you will have a chance to discover and explore resources available through your library’s web site, the HOMEACCESS databases!

Mid-Hudson Library System member libraries do a great job of pooling funds so that all libraries can offer top-notch databases to their patrons. The menu of available databases is put together by the MHLS Collection Development / Central Library Advisory Committee and voted on by the Directors Association. By each library chipping in a bit all libraries have access to the things patrons want, like online encyclopedias, car repair manuals, language learning and practice tests for high school, college and career advancement.

We have found that when front line staff are aware, comfortable and confident with the databases that are available patron usage goes up! Help your library and your community get their money’s worth by learning about how fantastic some of these databases are this week!
