Databases

The Ypsilanti District Library provides access to a wide variety of databases, including full text magazine and newspaper databases and resources that concern specific subject areas such as business, health, education, computers, genealogy, and literature. All are available from within the library, and most can be accessed by YDL cardholders from outside the library as well.

Why use databases?

Our databases provide reliable, up-to-date information available over the internet 24/7. With our databases, you can use the library anytime, anywhere.

How do I access databases?

When using databases from outside the library you will be required to enter your library card number. 

What is the Michigan eLibrary (MEL)?

You can also access many of these databases from outside the library with a valid Michigan driver's license or state I.D. number at Michigan eLibrary.
