The access to information, the ability to look anything up, has become a necessity since the dawn of the internet. With the explosion of smartphones worldwide, the cost of entry to this vast knowledge base has been significantly lowered. Everyone in the world can link into this seemingly infinite network of articles and news to answer any personal query. There is one major issue with this model: What sources can you trust? What is reliable? Luckily there is a haven, a safe place staffed with book wizards, information explorers, or better known as librarians.

When people have questions they often turn to Google to find answers. While this can be an effective strategy for many questions answered with basic information, you may not find the best information if you end your search there. In our quest to connect our customers with the best, most valuable information they need, Anythink has carefully chosen a collection of databases filled with information you can't find elsewhere on the web, even with Google.

Over the years, the physical library space has changed dramatically to accommodate new and ever-changing community, informational and technological needs. Library designers incorporate these needs into the building design through a balance of aesthetics and functionality.
