Thanks for asking! Omaha Public Library does subscribe to a small handful of journal databases. The publications and subjects covered change over time as our vendors add or drop titles. These days our best subscriptions for scientific journal coverage are Gale General OneFile and eLibrary. As a rule, as a public library we'll tend to have more coverage at a general interest level than a professional level. That said, General OneFile does have Cartography and Geographic Information Systems in full-text. 

Anytime you're looking for a specific publication you can use our journal finder to check which of the library's database subscriptions carries it, if any. You can also browse publications or run keyword or subject searches in the individual databases. 

All of our databases can be accessed from our Resource Center at omahalibrary.org, if the links above don't work properly. Outside the library you'll use your library card number and 4-digit PIN for remote access. If you have trouble finding the articles you need, please feel free to email back or give a call to 402-444-4800. Additionally, if you're ever in need of an article from a publication we don't carry, it's often easy and inexpensive to get a photocopy through inter-library loan. We'll be happy to work with you to find what you need. 

Thanks again for your question.
