Resources on Trial

In addition to the hundreds of databases, thousands of eBooks and millions of journal articles we provide remote online access to via our subject pages and Discover interface we also have a number of eResources on trial at any one time.

Members of Durham University can see what resources we have and gain access to them via:

Given the situation we currently find ourselves in, it is perhaps unsurprising that we have more trials currently available to us than usual. And we need YOUR help to assess if they are worth considering gaining permanent access to. You can offer feedback on any of our trials here

Let us know what you think!
