eTrials - Trials & Test of New eResources
The Library offers trials of new databases to allow faculty, students and staff the opportunity to examine their suitability. Feedback from trials is used to inform possible purchase decisions. Depending on the feedback obtained, and the cost involved, some of these databases and electronic resources may be added to the UMass Dartmouth Library collection. Quoted descriptions are taken from vendors' descriptions made available through the product or on the vendor's web site.
Send your thoughts to Susan Raidy-Klein, Collection Development and Acquisitions Librarian. All feedback received will be reviewed by library's Collection Development committee.
