Seven Current Database Trials - what's your opinion?

Where possible, we like to organise free trials of new e-resources to offer you the chance to see their value to current teaching and research, and to allow time for a thorough assessment to take place.

Your opinions about these trial databases are very valuable in helping us to determine what the next step should be, and feedback and comments are much appreciated.

We have seven ongoing e-resource trials, at present, with more to come.  If you have used any of these databases, we would value your comments.

Please use the Comments link under the entries in this blog, to provide us with feedback. Thank you.
