Database Trial Information

Information for library users about databases available via trial access


The State Library occasionally offers short-term trial access to databases we are considering for future subscriptions. This guide collects brief information about past trial databases, along with providing more detailed information for current trial databases.

We actively seek feedback from state employees during the evaluation process. We request input via feedback surveys, which are shared in emails, the Government Information & Library Services' newsletter, eClips tips, this guide, and the Databases A-Z page.
