Online Resources and Databases

Authentication to these resources require our patrons to enter not only their library card number, but also their PIN (Personal Identification Number).

Due to contractual agreements and budgetary restrictions, access to the subscription databases is reserved for Hamilton East Public Library card holders only. PLAC and reciprocal borrowers will not be allowed access to the subscription databases.

Our authentication, and therefore access to the databases and our catalog, is not available from 11:30 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. to run a complete backup of our automation system.

We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause
