Guides to Library Resources

Posted & filed under Blog, Technology.

Each month, hundreds of Lincolnwood residents use their library cards to take advantage of shared subscription resources such as Consumer Reports,, Morningstar Investment Research Center, and Ancestry Library Edition. Whether you are a job seeker, college student, preschooler, or retiree, these resources offer information you can use!

It’s possible to tap into all but two of the library’s online resources from home. (The exceptions are and the Catalog of Museum Images Online.) Now, you can also access user guides from home. Visit for the full collection of guides, or follow the User guide links in our Resources by Topic list. Guides can be viewed online, downloaded, and/or printed.

Want to learn more? Call us at (847) 677-5277, email us, stop by, or schedule a one-on-one appointment with a librarian. We’d love to give you an overview of our resources, work with you to research a particular topic, and support you in achieving your goals.
