Electronic Resource Trials

This page serves as a way for the Library to receive feedback from you about proposed new products. Budgetary restrictions make it impossible for us to acquire all of the electronic resources that we try out so your input is helpful in determining our priorities.

Trials are listed chronologically by expiration date.  To access trials, users must be on-campus, either on a wired workstation or using IUSecure, or be using a VPN connection.
