Your Chandler Public Library subscribes to a wealth of information in our online resources, material you won’t find for free in an ordinary web search, but all free to you with your library card! You might already know about some of our most popular resources - Consumer Reports for product ratings, Lynda for video courses on a variety of computer/technology and creative subjects, and ReferenceUSA for business research - but we have so many more! Here are some of our “Hidden Gems” - less used databases that have information for you.
Job Searchers: Career Transitions offers resume and cover letter tips, an interview simulator, and a career assessment quiz.
Test Takers and other students: Learning Express. Studying for the GED, SAT, ASVAB, HESI, or other academic or career exams? You can find study guides and practice tests here. There’s also practice for math, social studies and other subjects for elementary, middle and high school students; math, writing and computer skills for adults; study for the Citizenship Test and more.
Language Learners: PowerSpeak and Rocket Languages. Why choose these over the more popular Mango Languages? PowerSpeak gets you started learning any of eight languages (plus two ESL courses) the fastest: just log in with your library card number and PIN, then click a language and go! Rocket Languages offers American Sign Language along with ten other choices.
