New Databases Galore!

The State of Michigan provides all Michigan libraries a slate of free-to-Michigan-citizens databases through the MeL Michigan eLibrary program.  For more than 15 years, the list has remained relatively unchanged, populated mostly by Cengage Gale databases – until now.   Starting October 1, 2018 and lasting for the next 5 years, MeL will license many new databases for us  – plus a few old favorites.  You’ll  soon see those databases on the Databases link, as well as on selected Subject Guides.

If you’re not using MeL databases, you’re missing out. Give them a try today!MeL Logo
