Online Resources

De Soto Public Library members have access to several online databases where you can find newspapers and research materials on many different subjects. If you are researching at home or school, enter your library card number to gain access to the database of your choice.

Searching a database is a little different than using an Internet search engine like Google, and specific strategies for combining search terms may be necessary to get the best results. The reliability of the information you can find in a database is well worth the extra effort, so please ask a librarian if you have any questions. We’re here to help!
