New database trials – tell us what you think

This is a reminder of the three database trials which we have running at the moment:-

All three trials are available on campus only. You can find out more about each database and how to access it by clicking on the title above. Please take some time to explore these resources – you may find some useful material for your assignments!

If you’d like to offer your thoughts on these databases, please complete our short online survey. As a thank you, we have USB memory sticks to give away to 10 students via a raffle on the 6th March. Just include your student number on the survey to be entered int he draw. Your opinions count and will help us to make a decision on whether or not we will take up a subscription. We are also happy to hear your thoughts via email at
