  • YA Magazines

Hastings District Libraries subscribe to a number of really useful research databases. These include encyclopaedias and subject specific databases.

If you need to find information for a homework assignment or research a topic these are a great place to start!

You can access these databases for free in the library, or many of them are able to be accessed from outside the library using your library card number and PIN (if you are not sure what you PIN is please ask a librarian). You can find these databases on our Free Databases page. They include:


givME (formerly BreakOut) is a searchable funding database from Generosity, which is updated frequently.

givME is available to use in Hastings, Havelock North and Flaxmere Libraries (no charge to access but usual charges apply for printing) or you can access it from our website using your library card number and PIN. You can find this resource on our Free Information Portals page.
