E-Resources

Electronic resources (or E-Resources for short) are materials that require an internet collection to view. On this page, we have compiled a list of free resources for non-library users, as well as the links to our subscribed resources for registered library members.
Subscribed e-resources can be used in-house either on a library computer or while accessing the library Wi-Fi from your own device. 
To access these resources outside of the library, you will need your library card number. If you do not have access to your library card for any reason, your card number may be requested from staff with proof of identity. 
If you need any help accessing these resources, please email infotech@hastingshighlandslibrary.ca for assistance.
