The following is an announcement from the NJ State Library regarding the donated access to an online research tool to help Superstorm Sandy victims with home assessment and repairs:
Database Providing Repair and Renovation How-To Information Now Available at New Jersey Libraries Statewide
New Jersey residents and businesses affected by Hurricane Sandy can now access EBSCO Publishing’s Home Improvement Reference Center™, a resource providing detailed, user-friendly, “how-to” information about home improvements and repairs. This valuable online resource will be available for use in libraries, or remotely using a library card, to assist home and business owners as they rebuild. This tool will ensure that those making their own repairs or who are faced with clean up or do-it-yourself renovations have the know-how to handle these tasks.
Building on a long standing partnership, EBSCO Publishing donated the repair and renovation tool to the New Jersey State Library, to support libraries statewide in assisting those in their communities affected by the hurricane. Library card holders can gain access through June 30, 2013 by visiting www.jerseyclicks.org, the State Library’s portal for searching statewide databases, or by contacting their local public library.
Home Improvement Reference Center™ includes articles and reference content as well as videos and images designed to help home and business owners make repairs easily and safely. The database provides the latest step-by-step information along with background information and basic tips on topics including electrical, plumbing, woodworking, outdoor projects, maintenance and decorating.
