The Libraries are trying out several new databases from Adam Matthew through the end of June. Information about the databases has been added to the trials section of the A-Z database list on the Libraries’ website. We encourage faculty and students to explore these new resources and submit feedback. The Libraries’ decision to purchase the databases depends, in part, upon user interest.
