The Library is presently reviewing the following resources as part of free database trial programs.
Several factors influence the selection of new electronic resources, including, but not limited to, cost, licensing agreements, ease of use of the resource, and the importance or value of content. A database trial does not mean that the database will be added to the Library Collection.
The Library welcomes feedback on the need and use of databases by its students, faculty, and staff. Please send your comments to Laura Crain, Associate Director for Collection Services.

These range from survey material, including interviews and statistics, to educational pamphlets, administrative correspondence, and photographs and speeches from the Annual Race Relations Institutes.
