The Databases class will provide an overview of the databases offered by Longview Public Library. A presentation of the individual databases will be offered, describing the kind of information each provides as well as how to log into each one and conduct searches. This will be followed by a closer look at using databases for personal research or writing papers for coursework.
Databases covered include: TexShare database package (provided by Ebsco), the genealogy databases Ancestry, Heritage Quest, Fold3, Archive of Americana, and Mocavo, Library of Texas. We will also touch on databases related to news, geography, language studies, literature and continuing education.
Classes are FREE but we do ask that you call (903) 237-1354 or stop in and register in advance. Also, if you sign-up for a class and cannot make it, please be considerate and call and cancel with us so that we may give your spot to someone else. We hate turning away people, as many of our classes do fill up!
