  • Click on 'Online Library’ at the top of the page > Choose ‘Databases’ from the ‘Formats’ menu or select a topic from the ‘Subjects’ menu. > Choose  from the list.

    In addition, the new website allows to search the site to find direct individual databases by name. Click on ’Search’ on the right side of the screen. > Choose ‘website’ from the drop-down at the left side of the search box and enter the name of the database you're looking for.

  • The workspace ID is s9225476.

  • No. The library edition of Rosetta Stone only allows you to learn one language.

  • Many of the services and resources on our site are managed by third-party vendors. This includes:

    Your catalog account where you can view due dates and place holds.

    • eBook and streaming services such as OverDrive, hoopla, and Kanopy.
    • Databases such as Consumer Reports.
    • Online tutoring such as Brainfuse.
      Each time you use any of these services, you're leaving our site. You're also visiting a separate website managed by a different third-party vendor.

    Since these individual sites are not connected, we don't have a way to log you in to multiple services at once. This is why, even if you've logged in to the library account you use to check out books in the catalog, you still need to log in to databases.

    We wish this was more seamless! In the meantime, we'll continue to explore ways we might be able to help simplify the log in process.
