Meet and Greet Databases!


Whenever I use a library database to help someone find what they need, they usually say “I didn’t know you had that!” With that in mind, I’ll be introducing a few of our databases every now and then, with the hope that when you need one, you’ll think, “oh, yeah, I can get that information from the library!”

LegalForms - Have you ever needed a legal form, and spent way too much time searching the internet, to no avail? We subscribe to an Oregon Legal Forms database, which provides a wide selection of legal forms across the most popular legal areas. Included are real estate contracts, wills, pre-marital agreements, bankruptcy, divorce, landlord/tenant and many others.


GREENR (Global Reference on the Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources) - Do you need to brush up on an environmental issue? You can go to GREENR to learn about topics as diverse as Aquaculture, Biofuel Energies, and Carbon Markets to Urban Farming, Vegetarianism, and Water Privatization. Each topic includes an overview, articles from academic journals and magazines, and links to relevant websites.


ChiltonLibrary.com - Folks who like to do their own car repairs have relied on Chilton Car Repair manuals for decades. All of the information from those books is available from home, through ChiltonLibrary.com. It includes thousands of year, make and model combinations covering the most popular vehicles of the past 30 years, plus additional coverage of specialty models.


Our databases are always available, accessible to anyone with a Newport Library card. Take a look at our website; you might find just what you were looking for!  If you need help setting up your PIN, you can call us at 541-265-2153 and we can help.
