About Database Trials

UW students, staff and faculty have temporary access to databases that are on trial.

Because funding for these databases is limited we need your feedback to decide which databases are the most important for us to add to our collection. We are interested in if, and how, you would use these databases for your research and for your teaching. Please send your comments to the email addresses listed with each database.

Access: All database trials are available within the libraries. Some are also available off-campus when using the proxy bookmarklet.

      

    Historic Newspapers on Trial

    The following digitized newspapers are on trial. Acquisition of one or more of these would supplement our current historic newspaper collection.

    All newspaper trials end on Nov. 30, 2013.

    NOTE: You may have to clear your browsing history/cache when moving from newspaper to newspaper

    Please fill out this evaluation form or send comments on these newspapers to Glenda Pearson at pearson@uw.edu
