Derbyshire Online Information Resource

Some of you may already know about this, but I didn't until recently - and it is well worth knowing about!

Derbyshire County Council have an Online Information Resource Database and if you have either a DCC library card OR a B-Line card, you can access various Oxford dictionaries and reference databases, Grove Art and Grove Music, Encyclopaedia Britannica, World Book Encyclopaedia, "Who's Who and Who was Who", and Infotrac Newspapers (an archive of national newspapers, journals and periodicals - including Geographical - back to 1985, and The Times Digital Archive back to 1785!)... Lots and lots of useful and interesting information - check it out now if you haven't already!
