Looking for a great book? Loved the last book you read and yearn for a similar read?
NoveList is a database that you can access through DPL’s website. It is found under Research and then under Books & Literature. Type in a title and on the right side of the screen, it will recommend 9 similar books.
Our New York Times database is now available from Newsbank. In a continuing effort to make efficient use of scarce library funds, we regularly evaluate our databases and found that we had duplication of content.
The current New York Times full text is available in our America's Newspapers package from Newsbank. As a cost-saving measure, we are now linking directly to the New York Times from Newsbank.
At the reference desk, we are asked a wide range of interesting questions, some involving the law.
How old do I need to be to legally ride a moped?
What are my rights if I am pulled over by the police?
My boyfriend is in jail. What do I do?
I need a will. Can you help me find a form?
Librarians can not give legal advice or counsel, but we can refer you to resources readily available to you.
The library's online legal resources and forms are immensely helpful. You can browse the Colorado Revised Statutes and even search for specific terms. You can find legal forms including leases, wills, affidavits, and much more. Whether you need help finding a lawyer, settling a landlord dispute or answering questions about citizenship and immigration, the library has resources to help you get started.
Looking for something great to read? Need to know what title is next in a series? Where do you look for reviews and author information for your next book group title? Visit us at Ross Cherry Creek Branch Library, Wednesday July 28 at noon for a tour of the library database Novelist.
Novelist is just one of the amazing databases that the library makes available free with your library card. I love helping book club members find that next great title, as well as find supplemental information that takes the conversation deeper when they meet.
Today (May 5, 2010) is the 49th anniversary of Alan Shepard's 15-minute space flight - the first space flight by an American.
At 10:34 a.m. Eastern Daylight time on May 5, 1961, Alan Shepard was the first American launched into space. The story was front-page news in the New York Times, and probably every other paper in the land. Check out the NYT front page story.
