Database Trials

Library database trials provide temporary access to new resources so that the Brandeis community can try out a resource and evaluate its content, functionality, and value. These trials are time sensitive, lasting on average up to 30 days. We encourage the Brandeis community to utilize these trials and provide feedback.

If you have any questions or would like to suggest an e-resource for purchase, trial, or to add to the wishlist, please submit via the E-Resource Request Form below. E-resource requests can also be made by contacting libacq@brandeis.edu.
