CLEVNET Premium Databases
The CLEVNET consortium is a partnership among 38 member libraries in Northeast Ohio. In addition to sharing physical resources, the CLEVNET libraries share digital resources known as “Premium Databases.”
Cleveland Public Library, which spearheads CLEVNET, provides access to these databases by topic and in alphabetical order. Click here to view the list.
Some databases are accessible from home. Have your library card handy—you may have to enter the number to gain home access.
