The Ohio Web Library database resources are purchased by the Libraries Connect Ohio partnership, combining Library Services and Technology Act funds from the State Library and state funds from the Ohio Public Library Information Network, OhioLINK, and INFOhio to purchase access to these statewide databases for all Ohioans. They are accessed from the Research Resources tab on the Westlake Porter Public Library homepage.

For many students, writing a research paper can be a challenge, especially if they are unsure of which topic to select. Explora™, EBSCO's engaging interface for schools and public libraries, aims to simplify the research process by enabling students to search across all of your library’s EBSCO databases at once using a single search box. Students can also browse content in Explora by category to get research ideas. In addition, Topic Overviews provide students with the background information they need to begin their research.
