Closed? No Problem.



We’re not going to lie: We love seeing you.

But occasionally, we have to close the building and lock our doors. (We need our sleep, too.) And maybe sometimes you can’t make it here while our doors are open.

Good news! It’s not necessary that you come see us in order to take advantage of our Internet-accessible databases.

The databases of Birmingham Public Library contain information on every imaginable topic. Our databases can provide full text articles from newspapers and magazines, wiring diagrams for automobile repair, encyclopedia articles, preparation for the GRE exam, critical analysis of Victorian literature, even legal forms.

With a handful of exceptions, each database is available to you, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days per year, wherever you, your computer, and your Internet connection happen to be.

If you haven’t yet, you should definitely give our – actually, your – databases a try. We have a feeling you won’t be disappointed.

I agree that the online db's are great, but man could I use a tutorial in what the offerings are and how to navigate.

If you guys ever throw together a Brown Bag Lunch class or something, please let us know!

Great idea!

We are currently planning video tutorials for the databases and hope to be adding them online soon.

Thanks for the comments.
