Visitors to the library have access to a wide variety of electronic databases; however, remote access to subscription databases is restricted to State Library authorized users: state employees and, unless otherwise noted, Thomas Edison staff and students. Authorized users needing a State Library access card, should complete the appropriate online registration form.

New Jersey residents should use JerseyClicks to access databases licensed  for statewide use.

All users are expected to respect the intellectual property rights of licensed material. Failure to do so will result in loss of access.
