Research Center now open at Fairview Library
Looking for a magazine article, your great uncle’s birth certificate, health information, mutual fund trends, or wiring diagrams for your car?
A Fairview Public Library (Fairview) card can help. Fairview recently added the Four County Library Systems Research Center to the list of services offered. The Research Center is an outstanding collection of authoritative, librarian-tested electronic resources available to you on your computer.
Fairview patrons can search special databases, read full-text articles and reports, explore encyclopedias and much more. Additionally, Fairview patrons can do genealogy research on Ancestry.com on one of the library’s computers.
These electronic resources are made possible by NOVELny, the New York Online Virtual Electronic Library, which connects New Yorkers to 21st century information via local public libraries.
The NOVELny Databases Program is currently funded by temporary federal Library Services and Technology Act funds awarded to the New York State Library by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Fairview patrons can access the Research Center thanks to Fairview’s subscription to the service.
Fairview is located on Walnut St in Margaretville and is open: Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, 11a.m.-5 p.m.; Wednesday: 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Saturday: 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
