Chilton Library Database

If you need to get your hands on one of those Chilton or Motor Trends automotive repair manuals and don’t want to peel out the cash to buy one, don’t despair! Just use your JCLC library card, go to www.bplonline.org, click on “databases” and then use the “database quick links” menu to locate Chilton Library. If you’re using the Internet away from a library, when you click on “go” you will be asked to type in your name and library card number. When the Chilton Library database comes up, select the year, make and model of your automobile or truck. You’ll be allowed to narrow your search further to find repair instructions, diagrams, troubleshooting tips, and sometimes even videos to show you exactly how to perform your own auto repairs. These are subscription databases and only available to JCLC library members—just one more reason to get a library card and become a digital patron! Save tons of money and research just about anything using the Databases at Birmingham Public Library.
