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 fill out the evaluation form for the database if available or send your comments to the email address listed with each entry.

Access: All database trials are available within the libraries. Some are also available off-campus and require a uwnetid login.
