Is it true? It can be hard to know if what you read online is true. One way to find more reliable information is to use the library’s online resources - with articles compiled from relevant encyclopedias, handbooks and reference resources, as well as print publications like newspapers and magazines. Log in to these resources from home (except where noted “In-library use only”) with your library card and PIN numbers. Learn more about using these resources by clicking “View our tutorial!” where available in the descriptions below.
