Online Resources

What are Online Resources?

Online resources are searchable collections of information. They’re great resources for business research, answering your health questions, homework or research needs and finding magazine, newspaper or journal articles.

How are they different from a general Internet search?

Information in online resources comes from high quality sources. The information is reliable. Most of the information available through online resources is not available on the Internet without a charge. The Library subscribes to these resources so you can access them free, 24 hours a day. All you need is a New Tecumseth Public Library (NTPL) library card and a PIN.
