What’s a Database?

Databases are resources the library provides (and usually pays for) that contain articles, facts, statistics, and images, from magazines, newspapers, scholarly journals, and reference books. Whether you’re seeking consumer information, researching a medical condition, doing homework, repairing a car, or getting up to speed on any topic – news, scientific, social, historical or otherwise – John C. Fremont Library District’s databases will connect you to authoritative information. Login 24/7 with your library card.
