Spring Electronic Resource Trials

Allison Atkins, Electronic Resources Operations Supervisor  

When we are investigating a new resource, we request trial access to the product to give students, faculty, and staff a chance to explore the new resource and provide feedback. The feedback on the accessibly, content, and user experience of the resource helps us make a final decision whether to move forward!
