Databases On Trial (2006/09/06)

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 Business Source Premier is the latest one of this kind.

Business Source Premier, -- It provides full text for more than 1,100 peer-reviewed business publications. Please try it out at,uid&profile=BSI until 31st October 2006.

Furthermore, one of our databases, EconLit, will change its access path from ScienceDirect to EBSCOhost at the end of this year. In order to familiarize our users with this new operation platform, the Library has liaised with the vendor of EBSCOhost to set up a website for trial. Please try it out at,uid&profile=ehost&defaultdb=ecn until 31st October 2006.

You are cordially invited to try out the above-mentioned databases via the campus network. You may also use the link provided in "Trial Databases" at the Library's website or directly access these two databases' websites via the URL provided above for your search.

Please kindly give us your comments on those online databases on trial at
