Online Resources and Databases

All databases can be accessed from designated computers in the library. Most of the databases can also be accessed from home. You will need a valid Osceola Library card to remotely access the databases.

When searching for a specific eBook or eAudio, we recommend checking both hoopla AND cloudLibrary for availability as titles offered may overlap. While hoopla has an extensive back catalog and unlimited users per title, cloudLibrary gives you access to the collections of all participating libraries in Florida. A little shopping gets you the best deal!
