Databases On Trial (2006/07/21)

Dear All,

In order to support faculty members and students in their teaching, learning and research, the Library has already acquired a substantial number of electronic databases. To further develop along this line, the Library constantly liaises with database vendors to have their new products tried out by our users before we decide to purchase them or not. The following products are the latest ones.

(1) Net Languages -- There are 7 levels in the General English course ranging from Pre-Elementary to Advanced, and an IELTS (International English Language Testing System) preparation course and practice test, which is designed to prepare candidates for the IELTS examination. Please try it out with the following user name and password at until 15th August 2006.
User name: macau
Password: lang2006

(2) Dragoninfo Ancient Book Database (龍語瀚堂典籍數據庫) -- It is a collection of ancient Chinese books in a variety of topics, providing online search across a number of digital books to access the requested information. Please try it out at until 17th October 2006.

You are cordially invited to try out these products via the campus network. Please also use the links provided in "Trial Databases" at our web site or directly access their websites for your search.
