New Database Trials

Samford University Library is continually previewing and testing new resources for students and faculty, so that we can best serve our users.

A big part of this process is trying out new databases for general and specific disciplinary research purposes.

There are two new trials up to preview with your Samford ID until next week-- Taylor and Francis E-books, and CRCnetBase.

Taylor and Francis E-books:
"This site offers instant access to the world's premier Humanities, Social Sciences, Behavioural Sciences, Built Environment, STM and Law content — from renowned imprints such as Routledge, Psychology Press and Focal Press. We have more than 40,000 titles available for purchase by institutions via our eBook collections — from general subject areas to interdisciplinary selections hand-picked by our editorial teams. We can also assist you to tailor-make your own custom package."

"'… well crafted with rich content, phenomenal speed, and intelligent navigational features. …the superbly clear tips woven throughout make it easy. … highly recommended for all libraries serving serious scientific researchers.' -Library Journal

"CRCnetBASE offers instant access to the world's premier scientific, technical and medical references with added support for libraries. Our subject collections are designed to meet the individualized needs of any sized library or institution."

These database trials and all of our other trial database access can be found on the Database Trials page, linked from the library home page on the bottom right side menu.
