Find the best library databases for your research.


What are Electronic Resources?

Electronic resources (also referred to as databases, premium resources, subscription resources, or online resources) are online tools and services that the Library pays an annual subscription for, allowing you to access resources with your library card.

The tools and services that you find in this guide are not available for free on the internet; you can't search Google and find the kinds of research and magazine articles that you can find in EBSCOhost or World Book, and if you want to use tools like, or, you need to pay for a membership.

With Winnipeg Public Library's subscriptions, though, you don't need to pay - you just log in with your library card!

The databases on this page are made available to you through a subscription owned by Winnipeg Public Library. To access these databases outside the Library, you will be asked to enter a valid Winnipeg Public Library card number. Access to these databases from home is licensed for personal use only; institutions may not access these databases.
