These subscription databases, which are not freely available on the internet, and the ask-a-librarian service are paid with federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds administered by the Oregon State Library. Oregon public libraries offer these same resources locally, and you can use the library locator to find your nearest public library.
