Information Resources and Databases

The Chester County Library System subscribes to a number of online resources for your research and information needs (look here when the search engine fails you!).

Topics include Business , Health , Auto Repair, Science, Biography, Children’s Resources and many others. Select a database by topic for quick access – some are available for you to use from home; for others you will need to visit the library. All are clearly marked as to their availability.

There is also a listing of useful websites by topic.

Need some help learning how to set up an email account or how to do a basic search on the Internet?  Try the free online tutorials from DigitalLearn.  You can also find software skills tutorials on Learning Express (available through the website.
