Page history last edited by PBworks 13 years, 1 month ago
Once you've joined the Digital Library of the National Library Board (NLB) of Singapore, you can access their eDatabases, a collection of 140+ electronic subscription databases, from any computer. 


Here are just some of the databases to choose from -- both general and subject-specific.  Think of them as the equivalent of "cable" channels of information -- ones that cost money to access because they are specialized (though in this case it's the government of Singapore who pays for the subscriptions).  So these are all FREE.


Unfortunately, it is not possible to directly link to a particular database -- instead you must start at the NLB's eDatabases page.)
