Electronic Database Trials

UNLV Libraries patrons have temporary access from the UNLV campus to the databases listed below.

The Libraries arrange trial access to electronic resources that are under consideration for a subscription. Librarians review databases for addition to the collection twice per year and your comments are very valuable in this selection process. Please let us know what you think of the resources by filling out the comments form.

If you have any questions about these products or would like to recommend a product for a future trial please contact a Subject Librarian.
