- ACCESS ELECTRONIC RESOURCES THAT ARE NOT AVAILABLE ON GOOGLE!
The Delaware County Library System’s collection of databases provides access to primary sources, magazines, newspapers, and reference articles from hundreds of sources! Databases include American History Online, Consumer Health Complete, Modern World History Online, the Philadelphia Inquirer Historical Archive (1860-1922), and so much more!
These are excellent sources for research on current events, history, the environment, health, and other topics. And you won’t find any of these resources on the “free web,” a.k.a. Google. They are for card-carrying library members only! To get a library card, just visit the Ridley Township Library with a photo ID and fill out an application (a parent’s signature is required if you’re under 18).
