Please Note: This collection arranges our databases and other digital resources alphabetically and by subject for quick referral. It merges database links from Live-brary.com with the database offerings purchased by Huntington Public Library, which are so noted within the following tabbed alphabetical listings. We have removed the descriptive annotations to keep the lists compact, thereby minimizing "browser scroll". Complete descriptive annotations are available in the "Databases by Subject" content area. These database products have been organized into two groups: those that are "available from anywhere" (provided you have an Internet connection); and those that, for a variety of reasons (cost, licensing contraints, etc), are only available from inside the library - and only from the library's public computers. Access to these products is not available from your portable devices via our Wi-Fi networks. For your convenience you will find links to all of these in-library use products on the desktops of our public computers.
