Collection Development and Maintenance

Requesting a Trial

Content providers are typically willing to provide full access to their resources for a limited time period so faculty and students can try the resource before we commit to adding it to our collections. We welcome opportunities to trial potential new resources you think might be a valuable addition to our collections. 

To request a trial, please send an email to with the following information:

  • Name of Resource
  • URL or Contact Information for requesting the resource
  • Timeframe you would like to request the trial (typically at least 30 days & you can request that the trial start at a future date if access is not needed immediately)
  • Any reasons/justifications you can provide for the library trialing and potentially purchasing access to this resource (benefits for specific courses, colleges, projects etc.)
  • Your contact information
