MultCo Library Portal
The Multnomah County Library system is incredible. Not only is it the busiest library system in the nation (circulation divided by residents served), it has an amazing portal that allows you to access pretty much anything you want over the web: MultCo Library Portal. You want to check out death notices in Minnesota from two years ago? It's there. You want to look at archived copies of the Oregonian or the Bend Bulletin or the Eugene Register-Guard or the New York Times? It's there. You want to look at an academic article that you would normally have to pay for? It's probably there. It's worth getting a library card just for access to the portal.
