Try-It! Illinois Databases Are Here! – Wishful Wednesday

Image

The Try-It! Illinois Database trial is is now live!  From now through November 30, 2013, you will be able to use a variety of databases for free from the comfort of your home computer!

This fantastic opportunity is brought to all state residents by the generous sponsorship of Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White and the Illinois State Library. Thanks to the partnerships between the Illinois State Library and the participating electronic resource vendors, there is no charge for accessing these databases during the trial period.

This year, several new genealogy databases are available to researchers, including two new resources: Genealogy Connect & Archives Unbound.

You will need a username and password to access these resources.  The Try-It! Illinois administrators have asked libraries not to provide login information electronically.  You can request login and password information from participating local libraries.

The Fountaindale Public Library provides a one-page handout which can assist you in navigating the site.  Try-It Illinois! information sheets are available at the 2nd and 3rd Floor Service Desk.  For more information call me at the library (630) 685-4201.

See you at the library!
