Databases Changes

Beginning July 1, CCPL will replace a few databases with similar offerings and add new databases for genealogy, online classes and legal forms.

Mango Languages will replace Byki Language Learning
User statistics show the top five languages accessed through Byki were Spanish, French, Dutch, Italian, and Japanese, which are also available through Mango Languages. Also, patrons will be able to access 15 English-as-a-Second Language (ESL), packages to help foreign language speakers learn English.

Additionally, Mango offers webinars on their website and an app for the iPhone.

The languages available through Mango Languages are Arabic (Levantine), Chinese (Cantonese), Chinese (Mandarin), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dari, Dutch, Farsi, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Haitian Creole, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Pashto, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Slovak, Spanish (Latin American), Tagalog, Tamil, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu, and Vietnamese.

For years, Chilton manuals have offered everyone from do-it-yourselfers to professional mechanics trusted auto repair information. That information is also available in Chilton Library, a database that will replace Auto Repair Reference Center. Patrons will be able to access the user-friendly Chilton Library from home to view and print PDF diagrams, maintenance schedules, recall information and more.

New Databases

Genealogy is CCPL’s most popular area of databases and we are happy to announce the addition of World Vital Records to our collection. World Vital Records allows patrons to search and view newspapers in their original image format, digitized yearbooks and gravestones photos.

Universal Class is the database for patrons looking to take non-credit, personal enrichment classes in the areas of business, grant writing, computer instruction and more. This database offers over 500 free online continuing education classes led by real instructors. Patrons may enroll in up to five courses and have six months to complete each course. The courses are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week so patrons can attend classes and complete assignments on their own schedule while communicating with the instructor via email.

Law Depot database helps patrons locate the appropriate printable and write-in legal form by either accessing the alphabetized list of forms or answering a set of questions. Additional features include videos and free online legal question chat service staffed by attorneys.

Patrons can use all of our databases from within any branch at the Clermont County Public Library or at home. With your library card number ready, click Research and Homework on the top menu of our website and select Databases from the list. Filter choices by subject, search alphabetically, or enter a search term.
