Requesting trials

Due to the budgetary impact of C-19 all trials are on hold until the end the of the Autumn term 2020 in the first instance.

Our current priority is to focus on the need to sustain existing resource access in a challenging economic climate and to meet a potential increase in demand for multiple, simultaneous use of ebooks given restricted on-campus activity.

Trialing a database or jounal is good practice and recommended before requesting books, journals and other resources for library stock. Trials are not guaranteed to result in purchase. New requests for journals and databases are considered annually, but may have to be balanced by cancellations owing to funding restraints.

If you wish to recommend a trial please complete and submit this form.

Please note: Feedback is a key part of the evaluation and purchasing process. We ask the trial requestor to provide their feedback and recommend the trial to other members and students in their department who may find this resource to be useful.
