Research Resources

The Nevada State Library offers many types of Research Resources. A majority of the electronic databases are accessible remotely with a Nevada State Library card.  There are also Statewide Databases that are available within Nevada public, school, and academic libraries.  If you do not have a Nevada State Library card, you can apply for one. There are a few databases that are only available within the Nevada State Library due to vendor licensing.  All of the databases are listed with descriptions and links on the Nevada State Library Electronic Resources Page. We also provide assistance with research. Our librarians are always available to answer questions or guide you in the right direction.
