iCONN - Connecticut's Digital Library

Did you know that iCONN saves our universities, school districts and libraries millions of dollars a year? The subscriptions for many online databases and journals are paid for through our state library funds. Download iCONN's latest brochure detailing the extensive services available for free along with suggestions on how to get started using iCONN at your school. You may also download the iCONN Times , monthly newsletters that will keep you abreast of what's happening at Connecticut's Digital Library.

Visit the iCONN booth at the CECA and CEMA conferences for more information.
