e-Resources Trials

The Library regularly arranges trials to new online resources.  E-resource trials provide temporary access to online resources so that academic staff, students and researchers can try them out and evaluate their content, functionality and overall value to the Institute.  Decisions about purchase are greatly helped when we receive feedback from the Institute community.  We encourage you to use the following resources being trialled and let us know what you think, using the feedback form provided.

If you have any questions about these trials or would like to recommend an online resource for future trial please email the Institute Librarian, Patrick Doherty at the following address: patrick.doherty@staff.ittralee.ie.
