Database Trials

Database Trials

( the image at right is from 19th Century U.S. Newspapers -- The Macon Telegraph, (Macon, GA) Sunday, August 30, 1896; pg. 20; col C.)

From time to time, the Library tests new databases. This gives us a chance to try new products to see if they could be useful for our students and faculty. We make these trials open to the library users so everyone can use them. Since the Library cannot purchase or subscribe to every database that we try, we rely on feedback from our BSC community to let us know how useful these products are. Take a look at our current trials. Let us know what you think!

You can get to them from the Database listing under “Database Trials”
