Using your Minuteman Library Card for Database Access

Access to databases provided by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners is available to home/remote users holding a valid Minuteman library card. 
Access to databases provided by the Minuteman Library Network is available to residents of the 36 public library communities served by MLN, as well as current students, faculty, and staff of the seven academic libraries in MLN.

Access to some databases purchased by individual MLN libraries is limited to in library use in that library and, where possible, home/remote access for patrons of that community.
