Dan Giancaterino on Free Access to Full Text & Full Image Databases from Your Local Library

Jenkins Law Librarian and ResourceShelf Contributing Editor, Dan Giancaterino, recently had an article in The Philadephia Lawyer published about a subject near and dear to the entire ResourceShelf team. Dan offers an in-depth look at what public libraries (and many other types of libraries, for that matter) provide their users with for:
1) Free. Each library has its own collection.
2) 24x7x365
3) From any computer connected to the Internet. In some cases, you don't even need to have a library card. Caveat, these databases are licensed for personal use.
Note: Access to these and similar tools can be found in libraries around the world.

The full text and full image (PDF) of Dan's excellent article titled: Better Than Google: Libraries Offer Online Databases With Quality Information — For Free is available (PDF) here.

Kudos and congrats Dan! It's always exciting to see that information about these tools is reaching non-librarians.
