The most relevant and trusted information out there isn't on the web – it's in our databases. Databases provide access to a variety of information sources, such as newspapers, magazines, journals, car repair manuals, and building codes. They are available only by subscription... and subscription costs are paid for by the Port Moody Library on your behalf!
To get started, all you need is your library card and PIN number. Your PIN number is usually the last four digits of your phone number. An alphabetical list of databases is provided below. Check out our eResources by topic pages for subject access.
