TIP Database

Among the resources on which the TIP librarians rely is the TIP Database, a library-maintained resource file of detailed information on human and social services provided to residents of southeast Michigan by over 2,000 agencies and organizations. 

Note: The Database can be searched only from computers in Detroit Public Library buildings. Please ask a librarian to log you in.
