Notes from the Library 3-31-20

I sure miss seeing you all in the Library!

Please remember I continue to be a resource for all things information! I’m trying to post the available links for ebooks and audiobooks as they become available.

Can’t Get into a Database?

If you get a page with “SLED Databases” at the top and it asks for username and password, read on!

If you’re an Alaska resident with an Alaskan area code, call 1-800-440-2919 for a password. Otherwise, Alaska residents can fill out our form (AK State Libraries) to receive a password.

Fill out the form completely so we can verify your Alaska residency. We must do this for our vendors.
