The New Hampshire State Library provides our library with the following database, which can be used both in our library and from the comfort of your home. 
EBSCO online database
This database contains access to magazine and other resources for children and adults on a variety of topics, and includes searchable interfaces such as:
Academic Search Elite
Business Source Elite
Funk and Wagnalls New World Encyclopedia
Health Source: Consumer Edition
MAS Ultra (School Edition)
MasterFILE Premier
Middle Search Plus
Newspaper Source
NoveList K-8
Primary Search
Professional Development Collection
Salud en Espanol
Searchasaurus Interface
To access the EBSCO database, click here.  Make sure that you have your entire 14 digit library card barcode number ready, because you will be asked to enter it for access to EBSCO.
Due to rising costs, the Heritage Quest and genealogy databases, as well as the Newsbank database, have been discontinued as part of the databases offered to all NH public libraries by the NH State Library.  If you need to utilize a genealogy database or find articles in back issues of the Concord Monitor or Union Leader, you may wish to visit the State Library in Concord.
