Remote access library: for the bored

Makeshift library fun for everyone!

Maybe you've already gone through as much Hulu and Netflix as you can handle. Being cooped up is like that. Did you know that the library databases offer you access to fun stuff, too?
For most of these you will already have to have used the off-campus login first.
