Try-It! Illinois

Once again we are offering you an opportunity to explore all kinds of new information sources, most of which you cannot normally access freely online. Through November 30, we encourage you to try any number of these databases through the annual Try-It! Illinois program run by the Illinois State Library. There's a database for everyone and every interest. We encourage you to "comparison shop," and let us know what you think (in a comment below), as your opinions do influence our own annual database subscription decisions.

  1. Go to:
  2. Login with Username, Password, & zip code in box at right margin. (call 708-532-0160 ext.1 to ask for the password)
  3. Click on Subject to find a database of interest
  4. Enjoy free information
  5. (optional) Let us know what you think, below
