Several new trials

The library is currently conducting trials of a number of new resources.  Trials give us the opportunity to try a resource out before we commit the funds to subscribing to or purchasing it.  Feedback from you – the Reed community – helps us make these decisions.  Go ahead and give these resources a try (from on campus) and let us know what you think!

Environment Complete

Literary Reference Center

Literary Reference Center Plus

NBC Archives on Demand

If you try one of these and really like it (or if you don’t like it!), let us know.  You can mention it to your library liaison, to a librarian at the reference desk, or send feedback to Rachel Bridgewater.
