Free Research Databases Available at the Library

The Goleta & Santa Ynez Valley Libraries have some wonderful databases available to patrons for free, which normally one would have to pay quite a bit to access, thanks to the California State Library. If you are a fan of the New York Times, you can access the full-text daily newspaper here. Those interested in investing and getting up-to-the-minute information on the stock market can do so by signing in to Value Line through this link. If you are a senior and would like to sign up for live, online classes on anything from learning a language, using your phone, doing chair yoga, taking a cooking class, learning photography, just chatting with others who share your hobbies, and so much more, sign in to GetSetUp at You don’t have to be a senior to love their classes!
