Our databases can be accessed with your digital library card. If you do not have a digital library card, you may use your Grand Rapids Public Library card. When you click on the link, just enter your library card number and password.

You may experience some problems connecting to online subscription databases due to the number of approved users at one time, due to server load, or down time of the provider. Should this occur, please try connecting later.
