New Library Databases

The Cedar Rapids Public Library is thrilled to offer two new databases to patrons thanks to a generous grant from the AEGON Transamerica Foundation. Cedar Rapids Public Library card holders now have access to Lynda.com and ReferenceUSA.

Lynda.com helps anyone learn software, technology, creative, and business skills to acheive their personal and professional goals. Library card holders recei ve unlimited access to a vast library of high-quality, current, and engaging video tutorials taught by recognized industry experts.

ReferenceUSA's information on 24 million US businesses and 89 million residents helps users create marketing plans, conduct competitive analysis, raise funds, and locate people.

Both databases are availble on the library's website and are free of charge to card holders.
