Trial databases

The library arranges trials of databases we are considering to purchase or subscribe to. Whenever possible, we arrange for these trials to be accessible off campus; we will indicate any cases where use is limited to on-campus computers. Each trial lasts for a limited period and will have a feedback survey to collect insights of users. Your comments on the usability, scope of content, and applicability to research and other uses at Virginia Tech will inform our decisions.
