Ask a Librarian

Our eReference Center has links to web-based reference tools available to our members on a 24/7 basis. The eReference Center is organized by subject. Included are both subscription databases, which require a GCLS library card number to access from home computers, as well as free sites which have been identified and recommended by our professional reference staff.

Full-text articles in magazines, journals, and newspapers, on most subjects, can be located using EBSCOhost.

Note: You can view a complete list of all the databases to which GCLS subscribes. Some subscription databases can only be accessed from within a GCLS library, due to special requirements by our database vendors. Databases accessed within a library do not require a user to input his or her GCLS borrower's card number
