E-Sources are for you if you are overwhelmed by random Web searching, looking for high quality information, or love the idea of getting something great for free!
The Library provides special access to these premium electronic resources, which are beyond the standard free Web searching. Most are products of major reference publishing firms and have content similar to, but are often more current than, their print counterparts. E-sources are available for all ages and reading levels. E-sources for kids and teens are great for homework assignments.
The Library provides access to 40+ databases and 250+ electronic reference books. The collection includes homework help, phone directories, magazine and newspaper articles, business information, genealogy tools, auto repair and more.
A number of changes to e-sources will be happening in 2015. All e-sources are evaluated for content, coverage, currency, and value to the Pierce County community. Talk with a Pierce County Library Staff member if you have questions about any of the Library’s services.
