You are a community college student who works full-time and need to conduct research for a business course from your home in the evening.

iCONN, the Connecticut Digital Library, is for you. Beginning in 2000, the Connecticut General Assembly provided funding for the development of a Connecticut Digital Library. Today, iCONN provides an extensive set of information resources available for all its citizens at www.iconn.org.

Log onto iCONN to find magazine articles, reference books, newspaper articles, images and more. iCONN serves a variety of needs including student homework, and business and consumer health research. Magazine and newspaper databases targeting different age groups and needs make iCONN a valuable and useful resource for students of all ages from kindergarten through college as well as the general public. Among the resources are the full-text of The Hartford Courant back to 1992, The New York Times, and biography, science and history databases. There also are dictionaries and encyclopedias, subject guides to Internet resources, and a statewide catalog of library holdings.

Log on now at www.iconn.org to explore this free resource available to you and your children. In addition to using iCONN at school and at the public library, students, parents and teachers may access the databases from a home computer with Internet access using their public library card number.

The Connecticut State Library administers the Digital Library in conjunction with the Department of Higher Education
