Research Databases


The Massillon Public Library is delighted to present this collection of research databases. Many of these resources are provided through the Ohio Public Library Information Network (OPLIN) and are an example of your tax dollars at work for you!

All of the databases included on these pages can be accessed directly from the library's public computers. To make an appointment to use the research databases with staff assistance, contact the Reference Department at 330-832-9831, ext. 312.

Most of the databases can also be accessed from computers outside of the library with any Ohio public library card. A few of the databases can be only accessed from other computers with a card from the Massillon Public Library.

ALLDATA Online, Ancestry Library, GrantSelect and Heritage Quest are only accessible inside the library. (Here's why.)

Browse through the alphabetical list of all the databases, select a topic category from the menu options on the left side of your screen, or enter search terms in the box at the bottom of this page to begin your research.

Questions about database access may be answered on the Frequently Asked Questions page.
