Start your engines with library resources

With summer fast upon us, have your thoughts turned to the open road? The Library has resources to help you get your car tuned up for warm-weather road trips.

Auto Repair Reference Center offers repair information for nearly 40,000 domestic and imported vehicles from 1945 to the present. Instructions and diagrams cover repair, troubleshooting and maintenance needs for your car or truck. Content includes millions of drawings and step-by-step photographs, wiring diagrams, videos, technical service bulletins and recalls and more.

ChiltonLibrary.com puts the same trustworthy information on your computer screen as in their car care manuals, but in an updated, redesigned format. This comprehensive database, which goes back to 1940, is updated monthly. Videos, animation and close-up photos and images enhance the written descriptions. Another great feature is the use of "trouble codes" to help users identify what their cars' computers are signaling them.
