Database Spotlight


Value Line

This is part of a series, highlighting databases available through the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library website.

The library subscribes to the databases and the public can use their library card to access the information 24/7 -- that means even when the library is closed! However there are a few databases that can only be accessed in the library.

So when you think of the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library, think bigger than "books and information" -- think electronic resources and use your library card to access all of this information 24/7. If you need help using the databases, please contact the Reference Desk at the Central Library (979-7151 ext 4) or
