Santa Barbara Public Library Cuts Database Subscriptions

State, local budget pressures force loss of resources

As a result of funding cuts at the state and local levels, the Santa Barbara Public Library System can no longer provide access to the following subscription databases, effective July 1:

» Ancestry Library Edition

» Biography Resource Center/ Biography in Context

» Chilton’s Automotive Library

» Health & Wellness Resource Center

» Heritage Quest

» Literature Resource Center

» Toucan Social Studies Fact Card

Click here for a list of databases still available through the Santa Barbara Public Library System Web site. Your library card barcode number will be required to log in to some of the databases from outside the library. The Foundation Directory Online may be accessed only from inside the Central Library, 40 E. Anapamu St.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
