What is the difference between a library resource and a website?

A library online resource contains articles and other information from print sources such as magazines, newspapers, journals, and reference books. Although these resources are delivered via the Web and sometimes look like websites, they contain reliable information from thousands of resources that are not often found by Googling.

You will need your library card and a PIN to sign on. Most databases are available to all Minnesota patrons with cards registered in Carver County.
